Pastoral care

Your faith-based connection
for care

A stay in the hospital can be a stressful time for you and your family. It is not uncommon to have complicated feelings of anxiety. When you are facing this difficult situation, spiritual support can play a vital role in your recovery and stability.

At Novant Health Franklin Medical Center, we understand the importance of meeting all of your needs, including those that are spiritual. This is why we provide a directory of local chaplains to all of our patients upon request. This directory consists of local pastors, chaplains and other religious leaders that are available to provide the ministry of care and counseling. Some of the pastoral care services we provide include:

  • Prayer and nonjudgmental guidance
  • Guidance for confused feelings
  • Communication with your local faith leader
  • Counseling regarding end-of-life concerns

Ask your nurse or physician for a list of local chaplains.  

If you are a religious leader in the Franklin County community and would like to be added to our directory, please call 919-497-8460.
