The John Dale Showell Family Chapel
The chapel and meditation area is a space within the hospital important
for well-being and healing of the whole person. We are fortunate to be
in an environment where faith and healing work hand in hand. This chapel
serves as a non-denominational spiritual place where the act of healing
can minister to patients, families, visitors, associates, volunteers,
Over the years the chapel has become an inclusive place where people, irrespective
of their faith, have found a haven – a place of quiet reflection,
a place to weep, and a place where despair and hope are expressed.
The chapel is an environment of comfort when patients and family members
are grappling with issues that directly affect their health and well-being.
In the process of coping with crises, guilt, loneliness, pain, anxiety,
fear of death or fear of some other loss, the chapel and meditation area
serves as a place to focus on spiritual strength and encouragement.
The Chapel is available at all times. It is located on the second floor
on the East wing of 2 North.
