Spiritual Care

Nemours Children's Hospital, Lake Nona

When your child is sick, your world is turned upside down. But you don’t have to travel this journey alone — our spiritual care team is always here for you to provide strength and support when you need it the most.

We can help you:
  • cope with the stress of an illness or hospitalization
  • discuss difficult decisions
  • deal with bad news
  • ease the loneliness and isolation of a hospital stay
  • offer religious rituals (sacraments, scriptures, ceremonies and prayers)
  • contact a clergy in your own religious tradition

Please feel free to call us for spiritual and emotional care for you, your child, or your family. We’ll meet you in the chapel, your child’s hospital room or wherever you feel most comfortable.
