Chaplaincy Program

The Chaplaincy program of Haywood Regional Medical Center provides pastoral and spiritual care to our patients and their families during hospitalization.

Our chaplains are professionally trained for this very special ministry and are here to offer support and comfort. Our on-call clergy represent all denominations of faith. Our chaplains offer you and your family encouragement and a listening ear during your hospital stay. We provide advice and consolation in times of crisis or grief.

You will be asked at your time of admission if you would like to receive a visit from a chaplain. Arrangements can be made for a chaplain of your faith to visit. The chaplain will be glad to contact your own local minister or church instead, if you make that request. Visits can take place on the nursing floor, in a waiting room, or the emergency department. 


Pastoral Care Services 

Being in the hospital can be a different kind of experience for many people. We want you know that our Chaplain and Chaplain Volunteers are available to provide presence and support for you and your family during your hospital stay.

We currently have an on-call chaplain service consisting of three individuals who are onsite and available to provide spiritual support and guidance to our patients and their family members, as well as our hospital employees and medical staff patients, Monday – Friday, 8am – 5pm. In addition, we utilize a team of five volunteer chaplains, Haywood County local Clergy, a full-time chaplain at Haywood Hospice, a Palliative Care NP, two social workers, and nine highly trained registered nurse case managers.


Chapel

Haywood Regional Medical Center has a chapel located on the second floor of the hospital. It is open 24 hours for quiet reflection for you and your family.


Our mission at Haywood Regional Medical Center (HRMC) is making communities healthier, and we aim to do this in every sense – from caring for the sick and injured to serving the mental, emotional and spiritual needs of our community members and staff.
