The chaplain is available to provide spiritual guidance, prayer, counseling and literature to aid anyone in need. Literature includes “Guidepost” magazines and “Our Daily Bread” devotionals. The chaplain is also available to contact denominational leaders within the community for patient and family support. To talk with a hospital chaplain, please call (270) 745-1688.
