Self Regional Medical Center Chapel

The hospital chapel is located on the first floor near the main entrance, just past the Main Lobby elevators. The chapel is available for meditation, prayer or quiet reflection.

The chaplains at Self Regional are clergy of different faiths who have received extensive training in providing ministry in the healthcare setting. Respect for spiritual or religious preference of patients and families are a key principle in our practice.

Chaplains reach across faith group boundaries and do not proselytize. They have a working knowledge of healthcare and understand the impact illness can have on the emotional and spiritual lives of patients and their loved ones. Chaplains encourage and support patients, families and healthcare professionals to draw on their own religious and spiritual resources to maintain hope, uphold human dignity, and address questions of meaning in the face of crisis or chronic suffering.
