Pastoral Care & Chapel
Hospitalization is often a time of stress for patients and their loved ones. Wadley Regional’s mission… To enhance the quality of life in the communities we serve is very evident in the services provided by our volunteer Pastoral Care team. Members of our pastoral team represent all religious denominations and are on call 24-hours a day to provide comfort and counseling. Arrangements can also be made for patients who wish to contact their own minister, rabbi or priest.
The Chapel at Wadley Regional Medical Center is located on the main floor between the main lobby and the emergency department.
The Chapel offers a quiet and peaceful place for solitude, meditation and prayer. Prayer request forms are available on the chapel altar and Wadley’s pastoral care members attend to these requests daily. One of the most beautiful works of stained glass can be seen in Wadley’s Chapel, handcrafted by a local artist especially for this area. The Wadley Chapel was recently dedicated to the loving memory of Mrs. Carroll (Nancy) Wheeler, who departed this life and years of service to Wadley Regional Medical Center as a member of our volunteer pastoral care team.
The Chapel is open to visitors 7 days a week, 24 hours a day.
