Chaplain and Grief Services

Fairfield Medical Center provides a continuum of physical, emotional and spiritual care for patients and visitors through our staff chaplains. During times of fear, pain, anxiety and stress, individuals can become overwhelmed and at times your personal spiritual advisor may be unavailable. Fairfield Medical Center has considered these needs and provides 24-hour spiritual support. Any patient or visitor may request these services at any time, regardless of your faith. As a patient or visitor at Fairfield Medical Center, we believe providing you with compassionate and trusted spiritual care can be helpful in your time of need.

Our on-site chapel is located on the first floor, south lobby, adjacent to the coffee bar. It is open around the clock providing opportunity for meditation. To request a chaplain, ask your nurse or call 740-687-8344. On an in-house phone dial “0” for the operator.
