Spiritual Care for Patients & Guests
Being hospitalized can be an intimidating and difficult time for patients and their loved ones. Some patients and guests turn to spirituality to calm their nerves and anxiety. For this reason, Firelands Regional Medical Center offers a variety of optional spiritual care avenues for our patients and guests.
Prayer and Meditation
Firelands main campus offers a meditation room on the second floor and a prayer room on the fourth floor. Both are open 24 hours a day to patients, staff and visitors. You are welcome to use the rooms for private meditation and prayer.
The Firelands South Campus Chapel, an interfaith area located on the 3rd floor, is open 24 hours a day to patients, staff and visitors. You are welcome to use the room for private meditation and prayer at any time.
Spiritual Care Volunteers
Firelands also has spiritual care volunteers of many faiths who go around to patient rooms to visit and pray. If a religion is listed, a volunteer will stop by the room; however, for those who do not have a religion listed but would like a volunteer to visit, please speak with your nurse. In emergency situations, clergy is available upon request.
For those who have listed Catholic as their religion, a spiritual care volunteer will visit on Sundays to administer communion.
In addition, spiritual care volunteer clergy are present during holidays such as Ash Wednesday and Passover.
