Pastoral Services

Pastoral Services

Chaplains, as members of the health care team, give emotional and spiritual care to patients, families and staff members. They offer acceptance and comfort during illness, injury and loss. Our chaplains have extensive training in working with children and their families in times of emotional crisis. Chaplains are either in the hospital or on-call around the clock.

Also, the Dayton Children's interfaith chapel, open 24 hours a day, is located on the second floor next to the outpatient surgery waiting area.
