Emergency Department

UAB MEDICINE is one of the few hospitals in the United States who has a Chaplain dedicated only to the Emergency Department Trauma Team 24 hours a day, 7 days per week.  We are a vital member of the team to help patients’ families stay in touch with the latest news from the medical team about their loved ones’ status, while also giving supportive care to the families.
