Spiritual and emotional care plays an important role in restoring your health and maintaining your wellness. Your spirit needs special attention during life-changing events such as birth, surgery, rehabilitation and illness. Woodwinds is proud to offer spiritual care as part of our hospital services.
Our chaplains offer support regardless of your faith tradition or culture. They will listen, pray, offer Sacraments, facilitate communication and even help resolve ethical concerns.
Chaplains are on site during the day and are available around-the-clock for emergency needs. To request a chaplain or get assistance connecting to your place of worship, ask a nurse or call the Spiritual Care department.

Your faith community
Your pastor, priest, rabbi or spiritual leader is always welcome to visit you at Woodwinds. When you provide the name of your parish or faith group, we will notify them of your admission or discharge.
Our multidenominational chapel is open to all patients, family members and friends, day or night. Located near the elevators on the Woodland level, this sacred environment is always available for your prayer and reflection. You may also wish to take a stroll through our healing gardens to meditate and reflect.
Bibles, religious texts, prayer request cards and Care Notes are available in the chapel area for your use.
Visit the chapel without leaving your room. The hospital’s channel 78 provides 24-hour spiritual music and an inside view of the chapel.
