Pastoral Care Services at Springfield Hospital
Springfield Hospital participates in the mission of the Crozer-Keystone Health System to alleviate suffering and enhance the healing of our patients by supporting their spiritual needs.
All patients have the right to access services. Clergy are trained to respect the religious commitments of all of our families and will not impose any particular beliefs or values on you.
The clergy and chaplains serve patients and families of all faith and those who do not identify with a particular religion. Regardless, you will find that your belief and values are honored by the pastoral care team.

Why would I call a chaplain?
Chaplains are available to assist patients with a wide variety of spiritual and emotional needs, including:
- Coping with the stress of illness and hospitalization.
- Discussing difficult decisions.
- Dealing with difficult news.
- Offering religious rituals, including sacraments, scripture reading and prayer.
- Contacting a clergy person of a specific religious tradition.
- Easing the loneliness and isolation of a hospital stay.
How can I arrange for Pastoral Care Services?
Eucharistic Ministers visit every day from the St. Kevin Parish, located next to the hospital. Patients and their family members can also speak with a nurse on their unit, who can assist by calling other members of the clergy, if needed.
