Chaplain Support Services

Spirituality is a source of hope and comfort to many, especially during challenging situations such as illness or injury. That's why Franklin Memorial Hospital chaplains are available 24/7 to offer spiritual support to hospitalized patients and their family members. We respect the religious and spiritual traditions of all people and are available regardless of religious affiliation.
