The deepest healing occurs when caring for the whole patient. We understand the needs of the spirit are critical to health. One important way we provide spiritual care is through chaplaincy. Chaplains are specialists, trained in human understanding, religious traditions and pastoral counseling. They are available to all patients. Chaplains see patients, family members and hospital staff of all faiths, ministering in a variety of ways from listening presence to prayer. Upon request, the chaplain will also make contact with community clergy members.
We have two chaplains, Julien Olivier, DMin, and Shelly Snow, MDiv, who are both board certified. When a chaplain is not available and there is an emergency, we will help find clergy members from the surrounding area.
Hospital chaplains are available Monday through Friday, 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
You can call directly at (603) 740-2824 or ask the operator or a nurse to page a chaplain for you.
When to Ask for a Chaplain
There are many situations in which the chaplain can provide emotional support and gentle spiritual guidance for patients and their loved ones. Consider requesting a visit with the chaplain:
Our meditation room is located near our Main Lobby, across from elevators 1 and 2. This is a quiet, comtemplative room that is open and available to patients, families and staff 24 hours a day.
