Baylor Scott & White Medical Center – Uptown Spiritual Support

At Baylor Scott & White Medical Center – Uptown, we want to meet all the needs of our patients and their families.

Although we do not have a chapel or pastoral care volunteers on-site, our facility is part of the Baylor Health Care System, so we can provide spiritual support for you through its Pastoral Care staff. Chaplains are always available; you can request to speak with a chaplain by calling (214) 820-2542 or the Dial-a-Prayer Line at (214) 820-2333.

The Pastoral Care staff can help you by providing:

  • A listening ear when you need to talk through something troubling you
  • An objective mind to assist you in making important decisions regarding your care
  • Support as you seek to make your faith a source of comfort and power during your healing and recuperation
  • Practical help and comfort in times of grief and in crisis situations
  • Scripture and prayer in times of need
  • An available presence to support you during your hospitalization
  • Assistance in contacting your clergy to celebrate sacraments or perform rituals

The Pastoral Care staff also perform a number of ministries including:

  • Making visits to you and your family prior to your visit
  • Visiting upon request prior to admission
  • Responding to medical emergencies
  • Involving you and your family in support groups as needed
  • Providing counseling to deal with crisis

Please let our staff know if they can assist you in contacting a chaplain or the Dial-a-Prayer line.
