Patients & Visitors

Spiritual Care

The Office of Religious Affairs at Montefiore Medical Center recognizes each patient as an individual with personal values and belief systems. As such, we support the rights of the patient to express their values and beliefs by providing chaplaincy/religious services through which the spiritual needs of the patients, caregivers, and family members can be met.

The ministry works towards the goal of preserving and enhancing the integrity of all individuals experiencing anxiety-producing circumstances as a result of hospitalization. The spiritual component of every individual is a vital element of the total well-being, and one we hold in the highest regard. Hence, the chaplaincy services are provided to assist in the utilization of faith and other resources, so patients may realize their optimum health.

The chapels and synagogue at Montefiore are available for prayer, meditation and serenity seven days a week. Spiritual support is available upon request.

Please make requests through the patient’s nurse or through the operator.
