Pastoral Services

The personal and spiritual concerns of patients and families are important to the quality of care Winship provides.

At Winship, the Pastoral Services department provides a chaplain who offers spiritual care, support and presence to you as a patient or survivor, your family and caregivers. The support of the chaplain continues from the outpatient to inpatient care facilities.

Located on the first floor at Winship, the Purdom Chapel is an interfaith chapel available for individual and group times of silence, prayer and meditation. The chapel is open during the clinic business hours. Pastoral services are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

Our pastoral services offer patients and families education about advance directives and spiritual counseling and support for dealing with decisions and concerns. We want to provide a safe environment for you and your family to communicate and use your faith to cope with illness and stress.

To speak to a chaplain during business hours, contact the Pastoral Services office at (404) 712-2000. After business hours and on weekends, ask the operator to page the on-call chaplain.
