Pastoral Care

For more information,
please call (361) 694-5491.


The Pastoral Services Department works directly with patients, their families, and hospital staff providing spiritual and emotional support during hospitalization. This includes working with local clergy to meet the spiritual needs of our patients and their families.

Main Chapel


The Main Chapel is located off the Seventh Floor Lobby as our Emergency Room renovations continue. This is a peaceful place to be alone with your thoughts or pray. This Chapel is open 24 hours a day, year round.

Chapel of the Blessed Sacrament


The Chapel of the Blessed Sacrament is a special space located on the third floor near the NICU waiting area. Patients and families, visitors and staff who are far away from their home parish have an opportunity to pray, meditate, and worship at any time of the day or night! It is a tiny but very intimate place with the Lord!
