For Visiting Clergy

The Pastoral Care Department works cooperatively with local clergy or their representatives to honor the patient’s cultural, spiritual and/or religious beliefs and practices. When a patient gives consent, we will be glad to notify you of their admission. When visiting a member of your congregation, please go to the Information Desk in the main lobby for the patient’s room number or call the hospital operator at (317) 582-7000. General visiting hours are from 8:30 a.m. – 8:30 p.m.; however, clergy are able to visit patients outside this time frame when necessary. In general, due to patient needs, morning is usually not a convenient time to visit. When meeting with family members, it may be helpful to call ahead to ensure that they are present. Some patients require additional precautions to prevent infections. If there is a sign on a patient's door indicating "isolation precautions," please check with a nurse before entering to request appropriate procedures.
