Pastoral Care Services

The Pastoral Care department at Emory Saint Joseph’s Hospital is a resource and a ministry which attends to one’s spirit, faith and inner sources of strength. Chaplains affirm the spirituality of each person, including those who profess no particular religious faith. Chaplains recognize that the inner spirit affects one’s perspective on life and one’s capacity to respond to life’s changes and crisis. The Pastoral Care Department and the Emory Clinical Pastoral Education (CPE) chaplains are integral parts of the clinical team at Emory Saint Joseph's Hospital.

At times of change or crisis, most people engage in a search for meaning that can bring them hope and healing. Chaplains are available to support patients amd families during such times. Chaplains:

  • Are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week
  • Are of different faith traditions
  • Routinely visit patients
  • Provide spiritual support for patients and their families
  • Provide sacramental care for Catholic patients

The Chaplains

The Pastoral Care staff includes chaplains from various religious traditions including Catholic and Protestant. A rabbi also visits our Jewish patients regularly. Leaders of other religious traditions are called upon request.
