Pastoral Care

Flagstaff Medical Center is committed to the total well-being of its patients. Pastoral Care Services supports the mission of FMC to maintain and restore health and wellness to its patients. FMC fully recognizes the concept of total care as embracing the physical, emotional, and spiritual needs of each patient.

Pastoral Care Services consists of a hospital chaplain as well as several volunteer chaplains; several chaplains speak Spanish and/or Navajo. Interfaith chaplains provide spiritual care to patients, their families and medical staff through active listening, prayer, sacraments, intercession and advocacy.
Pastoral Care Services works together with community and local religious leaders. Protestant pastors, bishops, priests, rabbis, etc., are contacted as needed for the spiritual care of our patients. We are here to care for the soul and well-being of the patient.

The hospital chaplains can help patients and families toward holistic health by connecting them with a supportive faith community outside the hospital after their treatment. Pastoral Care Services offers pre- and post-operative counseling for patients, makes regular daily visits to patients and is available for emergency calls for patients after hours.
