Self Regional Healthcare Clergy Staff

For more than 50 years, Self Regional Healthcare has worked to serve the spiritual needs and values of our patients, families, and staff.  We care for our patients—body and soul.

In the late 1950s, hospital administration and clergy organized a Clergy Staff.  Our Clergy Staff provides pastoral care services to patients and their families, assures systematic and healing pastoral visits, allows warm collaboration between clergy and hospital administration, and nurtures a team environment for medical, nursing, and supportive staff.  The Clergy Staff is an organization of ordained or properly authorized ministers of a duly constituted religious body serving in Greenwood County or in nearby areas for which persons are served by Self Regional Healthcare.
