A chaplain provides spiritual support to patients, families, staff and volunteers of all cultures and beliefs. To request a visit for spiritual care, please ask a staff member or call Mass Eye and Ear’s Social Work Department at 617-573-3550.

Spiritual support can help when you:

  • Have no nearby family and/or friends, or you just want someone to talk with or confide in
  • Are preparing for a major procedure or feel distressed by difficult life issues or decisions
  • Have suffered a recent loss or are struggling with finding or creating a sense of meaning in difficult times
  • Would like a blessing, prayer, or meditation or are seeking support through your own religious or spiritual resources

All are also welcome to visit the chapel at Massachusetts General Hospital, which is adjacent to Mass Eye and Ear’s Boston main campus.
