NewYork-Presbyterian/Lawrence Hospital’s Pastoral Care staff is available to meet the religious and spiritual needs of patients, families and staff. Usually within the first day of admission a member of the Pastoral Care team will visit with the patient to determine their religious preference and needs, and whether they can help contact the patient’s faith community. In addition to pastoral care and sacramental ministry at the bedside, patients and their guests can visit the Barbara G. Yeager Chapel on the first floor of the hospital. The chapel is always open for prayer and meditation and houses an array of scriptural resources, spiritual literature, Islamic prayer rugs and electric candles.
