The Pastoral Care Department of the Richland Hospital consists of pastors from the community who serve as volunteer Hospital Chaplains. These chaplains are available to offer spiritual and emotional support to hospital patients and
their families, as well as support to the hospital staff.
Chaplains are available anytime. If you wish to see a Chaplain, ask your nurse to call the Chaplain of the day. Members of this department include:
Rev. Charles Hayes (Nazarene)
Mary Ellen Boak (Roman Catholic)
Rev. Ken Halstead (ELCA Lutheran)
Pastor Mary Jeffries (Baptist)
Rev. Gary Ihasz (Free Methodist)
Pastor Elaine Hanson-Hysell (Presbyterian)
The Richland Hospital Chapel is located in the main lobby of the hospital. The chapel is provided for you and your family as a quiet place for prayer and meditation. Please feel free to use the chapel at anytime during your stay. Contact a nurse if you need assistance in getting to the chapel.
