Chaplaincy Services

North Bay Regional Health Centre is committed to holistic healing, including the spiritual needs of our patients.

During the admission process, you will be asked your religion. Unless you notify us otherwise, your name, room number and religious affiliation will be included on the patient list, available to community clergy/spiritual care providers from your indicated religion.

You have choices for your spiritual care needs. Patients and their families can choose to contact the NBRHC chaplain, their own clergy/spiritual care provider.


Our chaplains provide:

  • Care to patients, their families, and to staff
  • Spiritual, religious and emotional care
  • Emotional support to those with no faith background.  Religion and spirituality are never pushed by chaplains.
  • Grief care and Crisis support
  • Facilitates spiritual care one on one or in-groups
  • Works with your religious needs and connects you to the religion or spirituality of your choice at your request

A Chaplain can be of support to you when you are facing a variety of life circumstances.  In the midst of these you may be feeling a variety of emotions including stress, hopelessness, helplessness, fear, or loneliness.  A chaplain can be a support in these times.  A chaplain is also available to celebrate with you in times of joy and happiness.

The Spiritual Centre

The Spiritual Centre is located by the West Main Entrance. This Sacred Space is provided to patients, their families, and to staff. It is open for personal prayer and meditation at times when there is no scheduled service. Services have temporarily been put on hold due to COVID.
