The Nyack Hospital Pastoral Care Department is a multi-faith department that provides for the religious and spiritual needs of patients and families during hospitalization.  The Department serves people of all faiths, as well as those without a faith community.

Chaplains and local clergy are available for individual visits in order to provide spiritual support for times of despair and hope, fear and courage, questioning and faith.  A chaplain can assist you in meeting the spiritual challenges of illness, in obtaining a visit from a representative from your own tradition, and in arranging for daily Communion and Sabbath observances.  A variety of services are available, including:

  • Anointing and blessing
  • Coordination of clergy visits
  • Daily chaplain visits
  • Daily Eucharist
  • Provision of religious reading material
  • Shabbos rooms
  • Support in times of ethical decision-making
