Sometimes our spirits need healing as much as our bodies. In a hospital setting, the person providing spiritual and emotional care is called a chaplain. At Levine Children's Hospital, we have our own chaplains who specialize in the care of children.

Chaplains are here for you 24 hours a day to listen and provide other clinically relevant spiritual and emotional care. To request a visit from the chaplain, please ask any staff member to contact one for you. Chaplains can also be reached by calling the hospital operator 704-381-2000.

You may find a visit from a chaplain helpful when:

  • Life seems very full, and you are trying to make sense of it all.
  • Life is changing because of an illness or injury.
  • You are making important decisions.
  • You feel strong.
  • You feel discouraged or disheartened.
  • You are tired of waiting for things such as test results, a diagnosis, or whatever is next.
  • Thinking about emotional or spiritual questions, such as, "Why is this happening to my child, to my family, or to me?"
  • You would like assistance contacting your own clergy or someone from your faith group, or you would like to receive a ritual from your own tradition or need other assistance practicing your faith in the hospital.
  • You would like prayer.
  • You or your family could use spiritual or emotional support.

Chapel

The chapel is located on the second level of Levine Children's Hospital and it is always open. Through lighting, art and design, the chapel is designed to provide people of all faiths a place set apart for reflection, quiet meditation or prayer.
