Professional Healthcare Chaplains at UAB Medicine offer compassionate listening and a non-anxious presence so that each person can more freely draw on their most cherished sources of meaning, power, and hope regardless of faith background.
We believe that “community is medicine” and therefore offer ways to organize a patient’s circle of family and friends so they can more easily meet the practical, emotional, and spiritual needs when they are at home.
UAB Medicine believes in emotional and spiritual support for patients, families, and employees. That’s why we have one of the largest full-time pastoral care teams in the United States.
Ask any employee to contact a Chaplain for you 24 hours a day, or call us at 205.934.4254, or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our mission is to offer compassionate, professional pastoral care whether it is in the hospital, outpatient clinic, or community for patients, significant others, and employees. We carry out our mission through two channels:
- Relationships – We build relationships with patients, family members, and employees in UAB Hospital, and in outpatient settings such as The Kirklin Clinic and others.
- Education – We participate in education in the hospital through Psychosocial Spiritual Grand Rounds, Schwartz Rounds, and offer Clinical Pastoral Education (CPE) to train future pastoral caregivers. We educate the community by teaching our unique Support Team model that helps friends, neighbors, and faith communities meet practical, emotional, and spiritual needs.
