Mayo Regional Hospital provides a coordinated service of spiritual and emotional care to patients, their families, and the hospital staff. Spiritual care is affirmed as an integral part of the team approach to health care. The Chaplaincy Program at Mayo Regional Hospital seeks to provide religious and spiritual care to those who desire that support. Such support is provided to people of all faiths and those who are not affiliated with any particular organized religious group.
Pastoral care is under the direction of the Rev. Ray Beless, and the Chaplaincy Committee. Serving as staff chaplain, Rev. Beless makes regular visitations to patients and families during the week and on an on-call basis. Trained volunteer chaplains consisting of local clergy representing a variety of faiths are also available on an on-call basis to offer spiritual support. Spiritual care is available 24 hours a day. Local clergy are encouraged to visit their parishioners upon request of the patient.
A meditation room is available for use for spiritual needs and devotional materials are found there. It is located off of the lobby near the front entrance to the hospital for those wishing a place for prayer or meditation. Those who desire a visit either from the staff chaplain or a volunteer chaplain should ask their nurse. Rev. Beless can be contacted at 717-8750 or by pager at 750-0043.
