Visit Our Chapel

Located on the first floor of the hospital, this interfaith chapel is a peaceful place to reflect and pray. It contains sacred writings and prayer books of several faith traditions which are available at all times for anyone to use. Various services are held in our chapel in conjunction with our Spiritual Care Services. A prayer book and confidential prayer box are located at the back of the chapel where guests and patients of the hospital can write their concerns or requests and be connected to one of the members of our Spiritual Care Services Team. Our chaplains pray daily over these prayer requests.
