Pastoral Care at Southeast Hospital

Questions or Concerns?

Contact the Pastoral Care Department at 573-651-5519. For emergent needs, have the nursing staff page the chaplain on call. We are here for you.

Southeast Hospital Pastoral Care helps our patients get in touch with those spiritual and personal resources needed to maintain a sense of well-being, faith and hope.

Our chaplains respect our patients' dignity and privacy and we do not impose our beliefs or religious practices. 

Providing Special Needs & Consultations

We are caring listeners who have been trained to help with the special needs that often develop within the hospital setting. We work with the health care team so that spiritual needs as well as medical needs are addressed.

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

Hospital Chapel Offers Peaceful Atmosphere 

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.

In the chapel, hand-crafted art glass windows provide an atmosphere of peaceful meditation 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 seedpods 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.
