Pastoral Care

NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital attends to the spiritual needs of patients and their families through its Pastoral Care and Education Department. The Department's ecumenical chaplains make rounds on units to meet patients and families at both NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital/Columbia University Medical Center and NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital/Weill Cornell Medical Center. Chaplains of many faiths are available for counseling and professional guidance and to help maintain religious practices, rituals and observances during hospitalization. The Hospital's non-denominational chapels are open to all patients and visitors and provide a quiet place for meditation.
