At UAMS, one of the many ways we seek to provide support to our patients and their loved ones is by providing access to pastoral care.
About the UAMS Chaplains
Our chaplains attend to the religious needs of patients and their families. Chaplains are available 24 hours a day to provide spiritual or emotional support to patients, families and employees as they deal with the difficult issues surrounding a new diagnosis or hospitalization.
Your Faith Traditions
The UAMS pastoral care professionals respect the faith traditions of our patients and, when requested, our staff will contact a patient’s pastor or representative of their faith community. We respect your traditions and cultural background and seek to provide the religious support each patient needs on an individual basis.
The clergy of many different faith traditions visit the hospital regularly and can be contacted by staff members at your request. Your personal pastor is also welcome to visit during your stay.
The Chapel at UAMS
The nondenominational Samuel Moore Walton Memorial Chapel is located in the Ward Tower, on the first floor diagonally across from the Doc Java. The Walton Memorial Chapel is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and is available for prayer, meditation and personal worship. Ecumenical worship services are conducted every Sunday at 10:00 a.m. Special worship services may be held in conjunction with major religious holidays.
