Pastoral Care


Passavant Chaplains are here to serve you regardless of your religious preference. They are ordained ministers with special training in healthcare. They do not represent a specific denomination, but work closely with clergy of all faiths in the community. If you want to have a chaplain or your own clergy visit during your stay, please let the nursing staff know.

Passavant’s Chaplain is Reverend Patsy Kelly. The Associate Chaplain is Reverend Jim Harper.

The Beilschmidt Chapel is located on the first floor, near elevator number four, for patient and visitor use any time during the day or night. We hope you will use the Chapel during your stay with us. Chapel services are held each Sunday morning at 9:30 in Beilschmidt Chapel. Patients, as well as families and friends, are invited to attend these services.

Check the Patient Education Television Guide for times of daily Chapel services. The services are on Channel 21.

Tamera Norton Honored with Daisy Award

Posted on: May 17, 2017

Tamera Norton, a registered nurse in the Transitional Care Unit, is the newest recipient of the Daisy Award at Passavant Area Hospital. Passavant partners with the Daisy Foundation to give the award each quarter to a registered nurse or licensed practical nurse who consistently demonstrates excellence through clinical expertise and extraordinary compassionate care. A grateful patient nominated Tamera for the honor: “Over the course of my 28 days at Passavant, I became concerned about my progress. I expressed my concern to Tamera. She took note and promised to try and resolve. She made many phone calls until she was able to make an appointment for me. She kept me informed every step of the way and helped arrange for me to leave the unit for the doctor’s appointment. The result of the appointment not only eased my mind, but caused a complete change in my therapy. Tamera cared for my needs unfailingly and always with professional and pleasant attitudes. The rest was way beyond the call of duty.” After receiving the award, Tamera is considering becoming a Daisy ambassador to help spread the word about her experiences. “As a nurse, our common core is to care that much about our patients. I was just trying to provide the good, quality care that our patients want,” Tamera said.
