Pastoral Care

Interior of St. Joseph's Hospital chapel

Your spiritual and emotional well-being is important to us while you are with us at St. Joseph’s Hospital. Hospital chaplains are available to visit with you, talk to you or pray with you. Whatever your personal beliefs, we have a chaplain on duty at all times, and we are happy to connect you with a pastoral counselor.

If you wish, we will contact your clergy for you. Please notify the Admitting Office at the time of your admission if you would like us to get in touch with your church or synagogue.

The St. Joseph’s Hospital chapel is located on the first floor of the main hospital near the Cafeteria and Visitors elevators, and is open to people of all faiths for quiet reflection and personal prayer.

Catholic Mass is celebrated in the chapel at noon Sunday through Friday, and may also be viewed on Channel 7 in your room. 

Please feel free to call the Chaplain’s Office at (813) 870-4258, or ask your nurse to assist you. You may also call the hospital operator by dialing “0” and request to be connect to a chaplain.
