Pastoral Services - Forrest Health

Pastoral Services

Forrest Health's Pastoral Services provides pastoral visitation and counseling for all patients requesting its services. Hospitalization provides time for reflection, which often brings forth hopes and fears. This reflection is normal and can be a time for spiritual growth.

Information for Visiting Clergy

Forrest Health respects all patients' rights to complete privacy during each hospital admission. In an effort to honor our patients' right to complete confidentiality, we encourage our patients to contact their own church, synagogue, or other place of worship to inform their own clergy of each hospital admission. This is the best way to insure our patients' spiritual needs are met while in the hospital.

Forrest General


Chaplains

Our chaplains are dedicated to helping meet the immediate spiritual needs of our patients and their families in hopes of encouraging "holistic" recovery and positive clinical outcomes. The Pastoral Services department and our chaplains are available to all patients and family members who request spiritual care during their hospital admission. Spiritual resources are available on request, including devotional literature, "Chaplains' Corner", Gideon New Testaments and other materials.
