Spiritual Care

The Spiritual Care Program at UnityPoint Health – Marshalltown offers educated and trained volunteers to provide spiritual care and support. This program does not seek to displace patient's primary spiritual resources. Rather, it provides complementary spiritual support. All personnel in the Volunteer/Spiritual Care Department respect all religious and spiritual preferences and collaborate with hospital staff to give patients the best care possible.

Spiritual care visitors assess spiritual needs to provide resources and to contact local faith communities and or church upon request. Hours are from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. weekdays and 1:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. on weekends.
