Question:

What religious services and facilities does UAB Hospital offer?

Answer:

We know that hospitalization can be emotionally and spiritually challenging for patients, their families, and guests. UAB Pastoral Care provides chaplains 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to offer emotional and spiritual support specific to your faith and religious tradition. Please contact your nurse or dial *55 to request a visit by a chaplain, or contact UAB Pastoral Care at 205-934-4254 between 8 am and 4 pm Monday through Friday.

Interfaith chapels for private prayer and meditation are available on the 1st floor of the West Pavilion, the 2nd floor of the Women & Infants Center, and the 4th floor of UAB Hospital-Highlands. A sanctuary for meditation and prayer is located on the 2nd floor of the North Pavilion. Weekly faith-based worship services are held in the West Pavilion Interfaith Chapel on the 1st floor. For a list of worship times, contact UAB Pastoral Care at 205-934-4254 between 8 am and 4 pm Monday through Friday or visit uabpastoralcare.org.

Additionally, The Healing Garden on the 5th floor of the North Pavilion offers a peaceful retreat for families and guests, and the Limbaugh garden in front of the Women & Infants Center is a beautiful space for relaxation.
