For some people, pastoral guidance and prayer helps to enhance treatment and recovery. Pennsylvania Hospital's pastoral staff consists of clergy members of various faiths who are available to meet with patients upon request for spiritual counseling, guidance and prayer. Patients who are hospitalized are encouraged to invite their minister, priest, rabbi or other spiritual counselor to visit with them during their stay, or to request a visit from a hospital chaplain.
There is a nonsectarian chapel on the first floor of the Preston Building, next to the welcome desk. The chapel is open seven days a week, 24 hours a day, to all patients and visitors.
To request a visit, contact Pastoral Care at 215-829-5993 or Pastoral and Guest Information Technology at 215-829-8777.
