Pastoral Care at Somerset Campus

Members of Pastoral Care Department at Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital Somerset are available to meet the spiritual needs of patients and their families 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Working closely with the medical team, the ecumenical chaplains can help ease the stress of a difficult diagnosis or treatment, provide support to families at the time of death and during other crises, and assist patients and family in making end of life decisions.

The department also makes arrangements for the sacramental needs of patients by coordinating the services of more than 50 volunteers and working with the Catholic priest assigned to Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital by the Diocese of Metuchen.

The nondenominational Chapel, located on the first floor of the medical center, is always open for patients, family, visitors and staff.
