The University of Mississippi Medical Center recognizes the rights of patients, their families and staff to pastoral and spiritual services. Spirituality can be an important element in overall well-being and in dealing with illness or injury.
UMMC chaplains are theologically and clinically trained ministers who are called and qualified to minister to all persons.
Chaplains can provide for patients, families, staff and UMMC students:
The chapel and the Department of Pastoral Services office are located at room WC-103 in the upper lobby of University Hospital.
Chaplains are available on call 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Call the switchboard at (601) 984-1001 and ask the operator to contact the on-call chaplain. UMMC staff may refer to "On Call Scheduling" on the intranet. Staff may make non-emergent patient referrals through Epic.
