A Message from the Program Directors
At UAMS Medical Center, one of the many ways we seek to provide support to our patients and their loved ones is by providing access to pastoral care.
Chaplains are available to assist patients and their loved ones as they deal with the difficult issues surrounding a new diagnosis or resulting hospitalization.
Our care begins by recognizing the dignity and worth of each individual and a commitment to treat each of our patients and their loved ones with respect and compassion.
We respect the faith traditions of our patients and, when requested, our staff will contact a patient's pastor or representative of their faith community.
We recognize that our patients have their own family traditions, come from different cultural backgrounds, and have their own unique ways of expressing what gives their life meaning. Our chaplains respect these differences and seek to provide the kind of religious support each patient needs on an individual basis.
If you would like to have a pastoral visit or speak with the chaplain, you may call the Pastoral Care Department at 501-686-6217, or the Chaplain Pager at 501-688-2060. The Director of Pastoral Care, and Clinical Pastoral Education, George Hankins-Hull, may be reached at 501-686-6888.
