Pastoral Care offers patient, family support

Southeast's Pastoral Care Department is available 24 hours a day to minister to the spiritual needs of patients and families.

The Pastoral Care Staff is also available for consultation on issues such as Living Wills and Advance Directives.

The Hospital Chapel, located on the first floor of the Hospital near the Surgical Waiting Room, is open around the clock.

All faiths are welcome to visit the Chapel for reflection, prayer and spiritual renewal. To contact the Pastoral Care Department, call 573-651-5519. We're here for you.

In the chapel, hand-crafted art glass windows provide an atmosphere of peaceful meditation in the Chapel while creating a feeling of upward movement as meditations and prayers are offered.

The windows, designed by artisans at Hopcroft Stained Glass Studios in Kansas City, express ecumenical messages of creation, nature, life and the human spirit.

Their design also depicts seed pods and fruits, symbols of the hope of refreshment and new life in the midst of turmoil. Graceful doves incorporated in the art glass window serve as symbols of a dynamic mood and the spirit of life and peace.
