Pastoral Care & Chaplain Services

Our Staff Chaplain, Rev. Phil Baucom, is available Monday – Friday from 8 a.m. - 5 p.m., to patients, families, and visitors for support related to the impact of hospitalization, illness, grief, and other issues. Local ministers serving as volunteer adjunct chaplains are on call when the Staff Chaplain is not available. While all chaplains are trained theologically, they are serving Wilson Medical Center to provide spiritual and emotional care for anyone of any faith. For pastoral care services, dial “0” and ask to have the Chaplain beeped.
