Chapels & Pastoral Services
In the spirit of compassion – what we call Sacred Work – our goal at San Joaquin Community Hospital (SJCH) is to help meet your spiritual needs, in whatever way you prefer. We are here to serve you, whether your spiritual need is a particular clergy you’d like a visit from, a certain book to read, or simply somebody to talk or pray with.
Affiliated with the Seventh-day Adventist Church, providing whole-person care to our patients is essential to our Mission. Our goal is to create a comfortable and healing environment for you and your family.
SJCH’s main chapel is located on the first floor of the hospital (between the main lobby and elevators). The chapel is used on a first-come first-serve basis and may be accessed 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
SJCH is staffed by a team of certified hospital chaplains. The chaplain’s office is located on the first floor of the hospital, next to the hospital chapel. You may contact a chaplain during normal business hours at 661-869-6629.
If you are in need of a chaplain after hours, call the hospital operator at 661-395-3000. The operator will page the chaplain currently on call.
