Chaplains are specially trained ministers who work as part of a patient's healthcare team, believing that a person's spiritual and emotional well-being play an important role in overall health. At DeKalb Medical our chaplains extend caring and healing ministry to persons of every faith tradition - with or without congregational affiliation.
Our Pastoral Services department provides spiritual counseling and guidance to those requesting it. If you would like a visit from a hospital chaplain, please dial 404.501.5148 or ask your nurse. Our chaplains also are available to notify your church about your hospitalization or to assist your minister or other church leader.
We also have chapels on the North Decatur and Hillandale campuses that are available for use. Please feel free to stop in for some peace and quiet or for private time for prayer and meditation.
