Chaplain services

VA Coatesville's chaplains are trained specialists in spiritual and religious care, available to patients and their families throughout their hospital stays. Our interfaith chapels offer space for quiet reflection, as well as regularly scheduled services.

Chaplain services

Our chaplains provide spiritual and pastoral care and emotional and/or spiritual comfort for you and your family. If you wish, they will routinely visit you during your stay in the hospital. Upon admission to the hospital, you will have an opportunity to request or decline visits by the chaplains. If you are admitted to an area that is served by an interdisciplinary team of specialists, the chaplain will be a member of that team and ensure that your spiritual and/or pastoral care needs are met during your stay. They are available to assist you in drawing upon your self-defined spiritual resources to aid in the healing process.

Chaplains provide guidance and resources related to building faith, praying, finding peace of mind, building self-esteem, viewing death and dying and many other areas. Also available are bibles, devotional guides and recovery literature. The All Faith Chapel located in Building 72 is a quiet place for meditation and reflection. Chaplains are part of our Patient Aligned Care Team model of care.

Communion is given at all Catholic masses and at least once a month or more at Protestant services. It is also given upon request at bedside for those who cannot attend services.

Confessions are heard upon individual request.

Memorial services to remember deceased Veterans, employees and immediate family members are coordinated upon request. Memorial services are planned on behalf of Veterans throughout the year.

Our chaplains seek to protect Veterans' rights to freely exercise his or her spirituality and have religious privacy. When asked, chaplains will contact your religious leader to assist you, the Veteran patient. Clergy members from the community who work with any Veteran receiving care are welcome at the All Faith Chapel.
