Wilmington VA Medical Center
Our chaplains provide emotional and spiritual support to you and your family, and they are available to 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.
Chaplain services are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week, particularly in urgent situations or emergencies.
Chaplains are located on the Ground Floor, West Wing.
