Pastoral Care

Ohio Valley Medical Center and East Ohio Regional Hospital strive to manifest the institution's concern for the patient as an individual having unique dignity and personal worth. We recognize that providing for the spiritual needs of our patients and their families is an integral part of the overall care we offer at our institution. 

Our hospital chaplains are interested in each patient's total well-being and are available to assist in any way possible. Chapels are located on the main floor at Ohio Valley Medical Center and on the second floor of East Ohio Regional Hospital. These chapels are avaiable for prayer, meditation and reflection at any time. If a patient or family member wishes to speak with one of our on-call chaplains, this can be arranged by asking a nurse to make a referral to the Pastoral Care department. The patient or family may also contact the Pastoral Care department through the hospital operators by dialing 0 from any hospital phone.
