The Pennock Hospital Chaplaincy Program provides ecumenical pastoral care to persons of every faith tradition. Our chaplain supplies spiritual care, encouragement, and counsel without seeking to proselytize on behalf of any particular faith community, denomination, or faith tradition. Pennock Hospital also provides an on-site Chapel, located on the Hospital's first floor.
We believe that each hospital patient is a person of dignity and worth, whose spiritual and religious beliefs are vital to their identities as human beings and to the recovery and maintenance of their physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual health and personal well-being. Therefore, we seek to meet the spiritual and religious needs of each person with whom we work.
Pennock provides a trained staff chaplain who serves in the hospital most mornings on a part-time basis. We also have an on-call chaplain that is available in the late afternoon and overnight period. Finally, on the weekend, we have a volunteer chaplain group made up of local ministers to attend to the spiritual needs of patients and families. Our chaplains are valued members of the healthcare team and works within the policies and guidelines of the hospital.
