Chaplaincy at Fort Madison Community Hospital

The Ethics Committee of Fort Madison Community Hospital, in partnership with the area clergy, initiated an on-call chaplain program. Fort Madison Community Hospital is dedicated to providing the community with consistently high-quality healthcare and wants to compliment this with consistent spiritual care as well. With the help of the area clergy, FMCH was able to put together a list of clergy members who volunteer in the on-call Chaplain program.

This program will allow FMCH to have a designated clergy member on call 24 hours a day, seven days a week with rotating 48-hour on-call shifts. This service becomes invaluable in cases of trauma or medical emergencies. It is the goal of the staff at FMCH to first contact the patient's own clergy or pastor if the need arises; if they are not readily available they will contact the clergy on-call. There are many times when spiritual care plays an intimate role in the total care of a patient and this program will allow the staff at FMCH to complete the circle of care. If you wish pastoral care but do not have someone available, please let the hostess at the information desk know (ext. 222).
