The healing process takes place over time, through many processes and in many ways – and not all of them have to do with medicine or the body. At Bon Secours – Southside Medical Center, we're happy to assist with guidance of another type, whether by one of our staff or a clergy member of your choosing.
The chapel, located on the ground floor adjacent to the main lobby, is always open to patients and visitors. Bibles and other religious materials are available upon request.
