For Clergy

 
For Our Clergy
It is our priority to keep the door of communication open with the religious leaders and service providers in our community to help you stay in touch with your parishioners when they are a patient at Jameson.
 
We have created a system to organize patients by the parish that they belong to so that you can call us to find out how many of your congregates are current patients. As a member of our clergy, you can efficiently retrieve room numbers of the individuals that you wish to visit and pray with when you arrive to the hospital by visiting the Guest Services Desk.
 
Patient privacy and HIPAA is also our priority. Please be aware that we can only give patient names and room numbers to members of the clergy who are ordained and registered in our system. We request that you wear your Jameson Health System name badge when on hospital property to identify yourself. If you are not registered and/or need a name badge, please visit the Guest Services Desk.

We have a standing open invitation for all members of the clergy to participate in our Pastoral Care Committee.

Religious Leader Appreciation Reception
This year, Jameson hosted a reception to thank our community’s clergy for the services that they provide through our Health System. We also took the opportunity to share the new service enhancements that Jameson has seen over the past year, including: corneal transplants, lower limb salvage & reconstructive surgery, bariatric banding weight loss surgery, stereotactic breast biopsies, vascular surgery and minimally-invasive lumbar decompression. A health fair was provided in the hospital lobby by all of the service departments of the Health System, especially for our clergy. Tours of the hospital were also provided. We plan to continue holding this afternoon reception annually. For more information, please call us at (724) 656-6116.
