At Mount Alvernia Hospital, we have dedicated and experienced Pastoral Carers to support you throughout the period of hospitalisation in an environment of trust and confidentiality.

A Service For Everyone

Pastoral Care is available to everyone, regardless of race, nationality or religion. The Clinical Pastoral Care (CPC) team is sensitive and respectful of different faith traditions, beliefs and cultural needs. Chaplains or spiritual guides of other religions are welcome to visit at our patients’ requests.

Our wish is to create a caring and therapeutic environment for all, hence, pastoral care services are also available to families and all staff working in the hospital.

Our Pastoral Carers visit the wards regularly. Patients who wish to speak to a Pastoral Carer may ask the ward staff for assistance.

Pastoral Care Service is available weekdays from 8.30am to 6pm and weekends/public holidays from 8.30am to 2pm. After these hours, they are available for emergency and special situations via the Nurse Manager-in-charge of the respective wards.

The Pastoral Care team provides support to those who…

  • have an issue to discuss or are concerned about
  • are anxious about their impending surgery or procedure
  • want someone to pray with, and/ or for them
  • are feeling alone, worried, sad or confused
  • need support to adjust to feelings of loss and/or grief
  • just want a friendly, non-judging, listening ear
