Traveling for Care?
Whether you're crossing the country or the globe, we make it easy to access world-class care at Johns Hopkins.
Patients and family members often wrestle with questions of meaning, hope, despair, faith and doubt. These spiritual issues cross all religious and spiritual traditions and connect us in our shared experiences.
The Spiritual and Pastoral Care department at Johns Hopkins offers sensitive, spiritual support for patients, family members and hospital staff from a wide variety of religious denominations.
Spiritual support includes:
Television channels 56 and 57 are free in all inpatient rooms, with programming that provides spiritual support, including music and visuals for meditation and prayer. Channel 50 is the Eternal Word from the Global Catholic Network.
The Bunting Interfaith Chapel is located in the main level/arcade of the Zayed Tower at Johns Hopkins. A Meditation Room is located in the Weinberg Building lobby. Both are always open for prayer and reflection. Weekly worship services are held throughout the hospital.
Chaplains are spiritual care providers who provide help in finding meaning, hope and support at the point of their need.
Johns Hopkins patients, family members and staff can request help from a chaplain by calling 410-955-5842. Nurses can assist in calling a chaplain during evenings and weekends.
