Pastoral Care

At NewYork-Presbyterian/Lawrence Hospital, we offer a Department of Pastoral Care to meet the religious and spiritual needs of our patients, families, and staff. Usually within the first day of admission, patients are visited to determine their religious preference and needs, and whether we can be helpful in contacting 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 the hospital. It is always open for prayer and meditation and contains scriptural resources, spiritual literature, Islamic prayer rugs, and electric Shabbat candles.

For support or additional information about our pastoral care services, call our Multi-Faith Director and Chaplain Sim Gardner at (914) 787-3009, or Catholic Chaplain Fr. Gus Badgley at (914) 787-3199.
