times of illness, many patients are comforted by a visit from their priest,
rabbi, minister, or a hospital chaplain. Easton Hospital has a full-time
pastoral care department, and chaplains are available 24 hours a day.
Our mission is to help you deal with the emotional and spiritual stress that
often accompanies illness or decisions about medical care. Upon admission, you
will be asked whether or not you choose to identify with a particular religion
or local congregation. We do this in order to provide pastoral ministry to
people of various faiths. If you belong to a local faith community, we will
notify your congregation upon your request.
Clergy of many faiths visit Easton Hospital daily. If you wish to receive a
visit or a sacrament or you would like to talk with a hospital chaplain, please
tell your nurse or call pastoral care at 610-250-4027.
An interfaith chapel, located on the first floor just of the balcony
overlooking the main lobby, is open for your family's use 24 hours a day. A
Christian Bible is available in each patient room on the adult units and at the
nurses' station in the intensive care units. Jewish prayer books and Sabbath
candles are also available by calling pastoral care at 610-250-4027.
