Chaplains

Chaplains at Premier Health hospitals can help enhance your and your family’s health care experience and well-being by providing spiritual support and counseling, prayer, and other spiritual care services.

Our chaplains collaborate with other members of your health care team to contribute a spiritual dimension to your care. They are available to talk with you or family members about any concerns you may have, such as:

  • Physical, emotional, spiritual, and situational distress
  • Medical concerns and decision-making
  • Quality of life concerns
  • Grief and loss issues
  • Death and dying concerns

You can also call on chaplains to provide you with needed sacraments such as communion, and help you access local clergy and spiritual resources, appropriate to your faith tradition.

In addition, Miami Valley South Hospital is home to the Miami Valley Hospital Pastoral Counseling Center, where a pastoral counselor provides a wide range of counseling services for members of the community.
