Pastoral Care Information

ICU and Ronnie Green Heart Center Visitation Times

There are no posted visitation times for these critical care areas.  You may request to visit in these units at anytime.Please use the intercom outside the unit to identify yourself and ask to visit. Family may be in the room with the patient, but also remember to check the waiting rooms for family.  Because these are critical care areas please remember admission to the units will be at the discretion of the staff. If there are not activities in the units that would restrict visitation, you will be allowed to visit.

Parking for Clergy Fellowship

There are 18 parking spaces available for clergy on the Medical Center Campus. You will need to be a member of the Clergy Fellowship to be issued a parking permit. Please use the three parking spaces near the Emergency Room for visits for emergency purposes.  There are five clergy spaces available in front of the Women and Children’s Pavilion. This is close to the entrance to the South Patient Tower. There are ten spaces in the new parking deck in front of the North Patient Tower for visits in this tower. Plan ahead where would be the most advantageous place to park during you visits.

Monthly Newsletter

Members of the Clergy Fellowship are sent a monthly e-newsletter. This newsletter contains information about happenings with the Medical Center and also community health information you may find helpful.
