Pastoral Services / Chaplaincy

Antelope Valley Hospital's Pastoral Care Department seeks to meet the spiritual needs of patients, families and staff members. Though the hospital is not affiliated with any religious denomination, our heritage has deep roots in the compassionate care offered by persons from a variety of faith traditions.

Experienced chaplains provide spiritual support within the medical center by emphasizing the strengths of every individual, promoting spiritual and emotional well‑being while seeking justice and peace.
