Spiritual, Religious & Chaplaincy Services for Adults
At NYU Langone, we understand that spiritual and emotional wellbeing may be just as important to your health and recovery as the medical treatments you receive. Because of that, our spiritual care team is an integral part of your care. Chaplains, imams, priests, and rabbis are available around the clock to meet with you and your family.
Our spiritual care team is trained to counsel people of all faiths. A chaplain can talk with you about your diagnosis and help you cope with the emotions that accompany illness and treatment. A chaplain also provides counseling on faith-related issues, supports you and your family during difficult conversations, and offers prayer, if desired.
