Pastoral and Spiritual Care at Hasbro Children's Hospital

Spiritual Care Services

The spiritual care department promotes healing by addressing the spiritual and emotional needs of our patients, families and staff while respecting their beliefs and values.

Multi-Faith Spiritual Care

Clinically trained health care chaplains can provide a listening presence, offer emotional and spiritual support, assist with ethical decisions, offer prayer and arrange for sacraments or contact local clergy. Multi-faith chaplains work with local clergy and spiritual leaders of all faith traditions to meet the spiritual needs of patients and families.

Our services are designed to accommodate the diversity of faiths and spiritual outlooks that our patients and families bring to the hospital. The spiritual care team can provide services to patients of any faith perspective, spiritual tradition and those with no religious affiliation.

Multi-faith chaplains are available 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday, by calling 401-444-4746. Please leave a message. We will respond promptly during weekday hours.

Roman Catholic Spiritual Care

Catholic priests are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Hasbro Children’s patients or family members can request the sacrament of Reconciliation, the Anointing of the Sick or Holy Communion by calling 401-444-4627.

In an urgent situation a priest may be contacted through the Call Center by calling 401-444-5108 or pressing 0 from a hospital phone.

Many Catholic patients have found that these sacraments bring peace, healing and consolation. Patients and family members are encouraged to notify their local parishes of their hospital stay.


Two chapels are available within the hospital to give patients and families a place for quiet and reflection. The chapels are open 24 hours a day.

  • The Hasbro Children’s Hospital Chapel is located near the upper lobby of Hasbro Children’s Hospital.
  • The Chapel of Hope is located near the lobby of the main building of Rhode Island Hospital.
