Spiritual Care

Emotional and spiritual support during your child's stay


Chaplains, including lay and clergy both part-time volunteers and full-time staff, are available at Inova Children’s Hospital to provide emotional and spiritual support to patients and their families.

There is a full-time staff chaplain dedicated to Inova Children’s Hospital. The hospital has a nondenominational chapel that is always available for meditation and prayer. It is located on the 1st floor of the hospital, near the South Tower elevators. Chaplains are on call to respond to emotional and spiritual crises 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

Please feel free to contact a chaplain by making a request through your nurse or physician, or by calling a chaplain directly at 703-776-3767.
