Norton King's Daughters' Health wants to meet your need for spiritual care. At any time you can request that your personal pastor or spiritual advisor be called. Several clergy in the area provide care for those who desire to speak with someone but who do not have their own pastor. Emergency pastoral care is available in critical situations.
If you're a member of the clergy and would like to be a spiritual volunteer or be accessible for on-call duty, please contact Volunteer Services, at 812.801.0129.
