Chapel & Spiritual Care

For many individuals, spirituality and faith are vital components of the healing and recovery process. At Henry Ford Jackson Hospital, dedicated and professionally trained chaplains provide pastoral care to patients, their families and staff dealing with difficult and stressful situations. Our team of chaplains is available to provide help at any time of the day or night.

Chaplains can assist with:

  • Spiritual and emotional concerns
  • Issues of fear, anger, guilt or despair
  • Grief and loss issues
  • Ethical issues and important end-of-life decisions
  • Questions regarding tissue and organ donation
  • Funeral home arrangements
  • Crisis counseling
  • Coping with illness or diagnosis
  • Sacraments, prayer and scripture
  • Connecting to community clergy

Honoring Diversity and Supporting All Beliefs

Chaplains are clinically trained members of the health care team who listen and show respect for each individual’s unique faith, spiritual tradition, race, culture, sexual orientation and lifestyle choices.

Available Daily

Chaplains are available 8 a.m. – 12 a.m., seven days a week for emergency situations. Chaplains routinely visit patients Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.

To reach a chaplain, inform a nurse or call the hospital operator and the operator will contact the on-call chaplain.


A beautiful, all faith chapel is located on the 3rd Floor of the hospital, down the hall and left from the Family Waiting Room. The chapel is always open and available for persons of all faiths to use for prayer, meditation or time away. Families of loved ones are encouraged to use the chapel as a source of quiet and comfort during times of crisis and need.
