North Mississippi Medical Center's Pastoral Care Department seeks to address the spiritual needs of patients, families and caregivers through its chaplaincy program. These services are based on an initial, ongoing and documented assessment of the spiritual needs of patients. The chaplaincy program exists in the belief that through appropriate spiritual care, patients and families may be free to attain a degree of emotional and spiritual comfort that is satisfactory to them.
The Pastoral Care Department functions as an integral part of NMMC's comprehensive approach of care for the whole person: physical, psychosocial, emotional and spiritual. Through conscientious planning, the program, in coordination with local ministers, work to lessen the spiritual anxiety which often enters the lives of persons facing illness and hospitalization.
Chaplains offer pastoral care to patients and/or their family members who request assistance in addressing spiritual concerns. The basic purpose of pastoral care is for spiritual healing through counseling and prayer bringing God's peace to those in need.
Weekdays: The Pastoral Care office is open from 7 a.m. until 5 p.m. Monday through Friday.
Nights and Weekends: A Chaplain may be contacted through the hospital switchboard. This service is provided for critical cases.
Chaplaincy Service can be requested by calling the Pastoral Care office at 377-3439. Requests for a Chaplain to visit a particular patient are encouraged.
Volunteer Chaplains are also available to visit patients in the Main Unit.
