Spiritual support for patients, families and staff
Interfaith Spiritual Care and Support
Being in the hospital can be overwhelming for you and your family. At Beth Israel Deaconess Hospital–Plymouth, we offer interfaith spiritual care and support. We provide pastoral care for you, your family and visitors, as well as volunteers and hospital staff.
Meeting All Your Needs
We believe in caring for you as a whole person during the time you’re with us. This includes your emotional, physical, social and spiritual needs. Our spiritual care team fosters a spirit of kindness and compassion. A clergy member of your choosing can visit at any time while you’re a patient in our hospital.
Chapels and Meditation Rooms
You, your family and visitors can find quiet, peaceful spaces in the hospital. We provide two interfaith chapels and meditation rooms. Open 24 hours a day, these rooms are located on the third floor on:
- 3 East
- 3 South
Interfaith and Catholic Pastoral Care
We provide a variety of spiritual care at BID Plymouth. At your request, our chaplains can contact your clergyperson.
If you don’t have your own clergy, our full-time interfaith chaplain visits with you to offer spiritual care. Several interfaith clergy members volunteer after hours if a patient or family requests spiritual services during that time.
Our Catholic chaplain works at the hospital part-time during the week, visiting with patients and families. The Archdiocese of Boston funds this position. Eucharistic minister volunteers offer Holy Communion to those staying in the hospital, and area Catholic priests also visit the hospital on a rotating basis.
