Question:

Are there quiet areas for downtime that my family can visit?

Answer:

We know that hospitalization can be emotionally and spiritually challenging for patients, families, and guests. The following quiet spaces are available for relaxation, meditation or prayer 24/7:

  • Healing Garden (5th floor North Pavilion)
  • Limbaugh Garden (in front of UAB Women & Infants Center)
  • Interfaith chapels for private prayer and meditation
    • West Pavilion - 1st floor 
    • UAB Women & Infants Center - 2nd floor
    • UAB Hospital-Highlands - 4th floor
  • Sanctuary for meditation and prayer
    • North Pavilion - 2nd floor

Our chaplain team is available at all times to provide emotional and spiritual support specific to your faith and spiritual tradition. Please contact your nurse or dial *55 to request a chaplain's visit. We also offer weekly faith-based worship services in the West Pavilion Interfaith Chapel (1st floor). For more information visit UAB Pastoral Care or dial 934-4254 during weekday business hours.
