Is there a chapel near the ICU?

Deb Cordes
Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation
The location of the chapel may vary in each hospital. Ask to speak to the Chaplain on duty and they can guide you to the location. The Chaplain can also provide you and your family spiritual counseling if requested. If the Chaplain is not available ask to speak to the social worker and the social worker can provide you with the location of the Chapel.

The chapel may or may not be near the ICU but the nursing staff will be able to direct to it. The nursing staff can also help arrange spiritual counseling at the bedside.
