Spiritual Care

Care of the human spirit is critical to health. It is the work of our entire staff. Chaplains, however, are specialists, trained in human understanding, pastoral counseling, religious and cultural traditions. They are available to all patients and loved ones to provide a listening presence, guidance in mindfulness and prayer, support through decision-making, and help finding purpose.

We have two full-time chaplains, Julien Olivier, DMin, and Shelly Snow, MDiv, who are  both board certified. A third chaplain, Karin Wetmore, MDiv, PhD, is available on a part-time basis.

Hospital chaplains are available Monday through Friday, 7:30 am to 4:00pm.

To contact a chaplain, call (603) 740-2824 or ask a staff person to call.

What to Expect from a Chaplain 

Emotional support and gentle spiritual guidance when:

  • Feeling anxious, afraid or upset
  • Struggling with emotional, spiritual or religious questions or with the meaning of an illness
  • Wrestling with difficult treatment choices or ethical dilemmas
  • Observing spiritual practices or  religious rites
  • Inviting your faith community leader
  • Grieving
  • Dealing with difficult news
  • Preparing mindfully for surgery

Meditation Room
