Chaplains and Spiritual Care

A chaplain is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week as a supportive resource to our patients and their families. At your request, your nurse or doctor will contact a chaplain, or you may make your request by dialing 0 for the hospital operator.

Our chaplains are trained to honor your values and beliefs and to help you deal with hospitalization and illness.

Liaison Service

The Pastoral Care department also serves as a liaison between the hospital and local religious organizations (churches, synagogues, mosques). Upon request, we are happy to:

  • Notify pastors, priests, rabbis and imams for those patients or family members requesting their services
  • Work with your clergy to coordinate hospital visitation


The UF Health North chapel is located on the first floor of the hospital tower. It is open to all patients and their visitors for personal prayer and meditation 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
