The Bakersfield Heart Hospital is a 47 bed cardiac specialty hospital dedicated to the diagnosis and treatment of cardiovascular disease, bringing together the most highly skilled health professionals, the finest facilities and the newest equipment.
In addition to your physical health, Bakersfield Heart Hospital also cares about your spiritual needs. Chaplains play an essential role in providing for the spiritual and emotional support of a widely diverse population of patients, families and staff from all religions and cultures.
Chaplains at Bakersfield Heart Hospital offer spiritual support to patients, their families and hospital staff. This ministry is manifested most clearly in times of crisis. The chaplains are committed to respect the dignity and faith tradition of each individual, and to guide and direct the spiritual climate of the institution. They base their pastoral care ministry on an inclusive basis, open to persons of all faiths or no faith. The chaplains also facilitate communication between patients and their faith communities.
To contact a chaplain, or to arrange for a visit from a representative of your own faith, please notify your nurse.
