Chaplain Services

The Pastoral Care Department at KSB Hospital is dedicated to providing both patients and visitors with spiritual and emotional support during your time at KSB Hospital. Our goal is to deliver the very best and most complete spiritual care possible.

Visitors are invited to use our Chapel for prayer and reflection. It is located across from the Gift Shop on the first floor of KSB Hospital. It is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week and is designed to be a quiet, reflective haven open to people of all faiths.

Bible, spiritual literature, Rosary beads and prayer rugs are available for use while in the chapel and are located in the cabinets.

If at any time you wish to speak with a KSB Chaplain while visiting KSB, please dial “0” and ask the operator to connect you with one of our Chaplains.
