We provide multi-faith spiritual care and pastoral services to you and your loved ones during a patient’s hospital stay. Members of the Pastoral Care staff are available to schedule bedside patient and family visits. Our board-certified, multi-faith chaplains provide religious literature; offer prayer, and spiritual counsel; provide assistance in times of crisis; supply prayer books, devotional materials and provisions for Sabbath and special holy days; arrange for the Sacraments; and notify your pastor, priest, rabbi or spiritual leader upon your request.
A chaplain is available 24 hours a day for emergencies, and can be contacted through the hospital operator. Non-emergency requests for pastoral care services may be arranged by dialing 1114 on any hospital phone. Please leave your name, room number, and the nature of your request. New York Hospital Queens is a partner with the Healthcare Chaplaincy.
