Pastoral Care

The Pastoral Care Team at South Shore Hospital is committed to providing comprehensive spiritual care to our patients and their loved ones.  Illness and hospitalization often cause patients and families to reflect on their lives. The compassion and professional guidance of a chaplain can help you and your loved ones toward renewed hope and inner peace.

South Shore Hospital's Conren Prayer room is a quiet space for prayer and meditation. It is located on Center 2 and open 24 hours a day.


As an integral part of the health care team, our chaplains are available to meet with you about your spiritual concerns.  Understanding the traditions of many faiths, our chaplains will listen, pray, or simply be present when you need them.

If you wish to arrange a visit or reach a chaplain for any reason Monday-Friday from 8 a.m. - 4:30 p.m., call extension 4022.  After 4:30 p.m., please leave a message, and a chaplain will follow up with you the next business day.
