Chaplains at Riley
Chaplains are important members of our health care team in providing emotional and spiritual care to patients, families, and staff. With acceptance and concern during times of illness, injury, & loss, they seek to help individuals and families access their own spiritual resources. Chaplains can draw upon religious tradition, ritual, prayer, scripture, and sacraments to assist persons in meeting their particular needs. Available twenty-four hours a day seven days a week, our chaplains will talk with you directly or help you find a spiritual leader from your own unique faith tradition.
How to Contact a Chaplain
There is a chaplain in the hospital 24 hours a day. A staff member will contact the chaplain for you, if you desire. If you prefer, you may contact the chaplain directly by calling 317.274.7415 between the hours of 8 am and 4:30 pm. Evenings, nights, weekends, and holidays please ask your child's nurse or the hospital operator to page the chaplain on-call.
