Support Programs and Services
ProMedica Bixby Hospital’s commitment to quality care involves the understanding that it is important to address the emotional and spiritual needs of the individual, along with their physical needs. Every effort is made to be sensitive to the diversity of religious and spiritual life of our community, and our patients. Our chaplain can provide emotional and spiritual support, which includes prayer, providing religious materials, providing emotional support, helping to process medical decisions or assisting you in contacting your personal clergy/spiritual leader.
The Merillat Chapel is located near our
registration desk on the first floor of the hospital.
The chapel offers a private place for quiet thoughts, prayers and meditation. Please let your nurse know if you would like to be visited by the hospital chaplain. Call to request a visit from a hospital chaplain at 517-265-0405.
Eucharistic ministers from local Catholic congregations may bring the Host to distribute to inpatients who have a Roman Catholic religious affiliation. Members of other Christian denominations may request communion through their own faith community. People of other faiths may request religious rites through their particular faith community as they are in keeping with hospital standards of care. Please let your nurse know if you wish to receive a visit from your local faith community.
