"It is tangible evidence that our hospital's cares for the whole person. I may not be able to take people's pain from them, but if they have a memory of someone standing with them…it makes a difference." Hospital Chaplain Rev. Marcus Briggs
Your spiritual and emotional well-being is an important part of your overall health. Many studies have confirmed the positive effects spiritual care has on physical healing. Since 1982 WGH has employed a chaplain who is in-house 4 days a week and on call for weekends. For comfort and prayer he is always glad to contact any particular spiritual support person the patient requests. A beautiful chapel near WGH Cridical Care unit on the second floor is always available for families, conversation or private prayer and meditation. Warren General Hospital is pleased to make available a hospital chaplain to provide guidance, counsel and emotional support to you and your family.
Your individual clergy are also encouraged to visit. Whatever your spiritual need, the chaplain can be accessed by asking your nurse, social worker, or by calling (814) 723-4973 ext.1727. If this is an urgent request, please ask your nurse to contact the chaplain immediately.
