Pastoral Services

The primary focus of the Pastoral Services Department is to implement daily visitations of patients who are admitted to the hospital for whom no church affiliation has been designated. A large group of local clergy volunteer to serve as chaplains who come in for these visitations. A monthly schedule is maintained in the Chaplain Office, thus providing key hospital staff members with an update of who these chaplains are each day. The Department is staffed completely with volunteer support and is led by the Chaplain Advisory Committee which meets quarterly.The Chaplain Office is maintained by a coordinator.

A list of emergency chaplains is also maintained by the Chaplain Office which consists of local ministers who are on call at any time for emergencies or personal family crisis which occurs in the hospital. One of these may be contacted by calling the telephone operator of Geisinger-Lewistown Hospital at (717) 248-5411.
