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.

Their brother, Devin, toured Occupational Therapy last year as part of the same event. He'll begin college later this year with the goal of becoming an occupational therapist.
