The UnityPoint Health - Marshalltown Spiritual Care Program offers educated and trained volunteers to provide spiritual care and support. This program does not seek to displace patient's primary spiritual resources, rather, it provides complementary spiritual support. All personnel in the Volunteer/Spiritual Care Department respect all religious and spiritual preferences and collaborate with hospital staff to give patients the best care possible.
Spiritual Care Visitors assess spiritual needs, to provide resources and to contact local faith communities and or church upon request. Hours are from 10:00 am until 2:00 pm weekdays and 1:30 pm to 3:30 pm on weekends.
Whatever your religious preferences, the Spiritual Care Program at UnityPoint Health - Marshalltown can provide spiritual support for you and your family and friends during your hospital stay.
There is a chapel located in the SE corner of the 3rd floor, off of elevator "A". Please ask the Volunteer at the Visitors Entrance in the Lobby for directions. Visitors and patients are welcome to access the Auxilary Courtyard located under the skywalk by the hospital's main waiting room. Both areas are open at all times for prayer, meditation and times of silence.
