Spiritual Care

The Department of Spiritual Care at Yuma Regional Medical Center cares for the emotional and spiritual needs of patients, their families and visitors and employees.

Our team of full-time Staff Chaplains and Chaplain Residents can be reached by calling 928-328-9297, or by asking a nurse or the hospital operator. There is a Chaplain in the hospital 24 hours a day.

The Spiritual Care staff recognizes that people may be secular, spiritual, religious or a combination of these. Many who identify themselves as religious are affiliated with a specific faith community. Those who are spiritual may not consider themselves religious, yet find ways to attend to their spirit. Those who are secular also have their own ways to handle joy and pain. Anyone who is searching for meaning and purpose along with values to guide their life can be considered spiritual. The Spiritual Care department welcomes the opportunity to meet with anyone seeking support.

The Spiritual Care staff are members of the healthcare team and are available for every patient. Our staff is comprised of professionally trained, inter-faith Chaplains. There are four Staff Chaplains, five Resident Chaplains and several part-time Chaplains.

When to Call a Chaplain

On site resources
An interfaith Chapel is located on the ground floor near the Heart Center. It is available 24 hours a day. Within the Chapel, there is a prayer book for making prayer requests and a consecrated Tabernacle for our Catholic community.

A quiet Healing Garden can be found at the south end of the Main Lobby near the entrance to the Intensive Care Unit. It is open 24 hours a day. Many use it for reflection, meditation or conversation.

Worship Opportunities
Catholic Mass is available weekly at 11:30 a.m. on Thursdays. Other worship services are scheduled from time to time or as needed by calling 928-336-7002.
