Pastoral/Spiritual Support

Two person photoSpiritual Care

Spiritual care for patients and families is an integral part of the healing process and comprehensive healthcare. Parrish Medical Center provides 24-hour spiritual and faith support to patients and families. Our Director of Pastoral Care, Reverend Jerald Smith, D. Min., is board certified by the Association of Professional Chaplains. Should you or your family desire spiritual support during your hospital stay, Chaplain Smith may be reached at extension 3526. If you need help contacting someone from your faith community, you may call the Chaplain, or ask your nurse for assistance.

The All Faiths Chapel is located on the second floor near the top of the staircase.

Ethical Concerns

There are times when questions and options about medical care and treatment pose dilemmas for patients, families, physicians and staff. Parrish Medical Center's Ethics Committee--a multidisciplinary group of physicians, clergy, hospital staff and community members--is available for consultation.
