Overlook Medical Center: The Patient Experience
At Overlook Medical Center, we care for the whole person, body, mind and spirit. The Department of Pastoral Care serves all patients and families.
Our staff includes trained, certified hospital chaplains in the Protestant, Roman Catholic and Jewish faiths, as well as Clinical Pastoral Education student chaplains and many volunteers from various religious traditions.
Chaplains, on call at all times, are always available to discuss spiritual concerns and sacramental needs. If you would like to see a chaplain, simply ask your nurse to have the chaplain paged by the hospital operator.
Roman Catholic patients may receive Holy Communion by asking their nurse or a chaplain, and they will normally be visited by a Roman Catholic priest to receive the Sacrament of the Sick during their hospital stay.
The Interfaith Chapel is located on the fifth floor (main level) of Overlook Medical, across the hall from the Department of Pastoral Care. It is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week, for personal prayer and meditation.
For those of the Muslim faith, please note that East is facing the stained glass window.
Catholic Mass is celebrated Saturdays at 3:30pm and Sundays at 10:00am in the Wallace Auditorium in Overlook Medical, located on the fifth floor.
