Chaplaincy Services at Medical Center of South Arkansas (MCSA) provides spiritual care, emotional support and crisis ministry to patients, their families and MCSA employees.
Chaplaincy Services also provides support and assistance to MCSA patients and the patient's family clergy or faith group, by informing them of medical situations, acquainting them with Medical Center of South Arkansas policy and procedures, and serving as a resource to patients and their families. When requested, Chaplaincy Services will assist in securing clergy of a specific faith group or denomination.
Chaplaincy Services seeks to transcend specific denominational or doctrinal differences. We respect each individual's religious or philosophical approach. Prayer and Scripture reading are regularly offered.
