Chaplains & Pastoral Care

Blank Children's Hospital offers hospital chaplains to provide spiritual and emotional support. Our chaplains serve many faiths and traditions. As members of your child's care team, our chaplains can offer your family comfort during the treatment process.

We welcome calls - day or night - from patients and families. Our chaplains can help your family with:

  • Difficulty coping.
  • Feelings of anxiety, fear, guilt, vulnerability, discouragement, sadness or loneliness.
  • Major decisions.
  • Meaning or purpose in life.
  • Spirituality as a source of strength and meaning for you and your child.
  • Spiritual questions.
  • Prayers and religious practices.

Chaplains are available 24 hours a day to provide support. Priests and clergy of other faiths may be contacted upon request. Call the operator for assistance.

Our Chapel

The Jeanne Hoff Goodwin Chapel is located on the first floor of Iowa Methodist Medical Center and is open 24 hours a day for prayer, meditation and quiet reflection. You may also write concerns in the prayer journal, which our chaplains pray through daily.
