Spiritual Care & Prayer Request

To help with the healing process, Mary Greeley Medical Center offers chaplaincy services to patients and their loved ones. If you need someone to talk to or pray with, our chaplains are ready to help.


Chaplains are on duty 24 hours a day at Mary Greeley Medical Center. Chapel services can also be arranged based on individual need. Chaplains visit with people in their hospital rooms. They also visit hospice patients either in a patient’s home or at the Israel Family Hospice House.


Spiritual care visits may be arranged during office hours, 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m, by calling 515-239-2502. You may also get in touch with a chaplain by asking any nurse who is caring for you or contacting the hospital operator. At your request, a chaplain will also contact your own minister, rabbi or other spiritual care practitioner.

Mary Greeley Medical Center Interfaith Chapel

Mary Greeley's Interfaith Chapel

The Interfaith Chapel

Mary Greeley Medical Center has an interfaith chapel located on the second floor of the medical center next to the Intensive and Coronary Care Unit (ICCU). The chapel is open 24 hours a day for those who need some quiet time for reflection or prayer. The chapel is an interfaith space, open to diverse faiths and cultures.

A variety of Care Note reading materials are available in the chapel. Please feel free to stop by and pick up brochures at any time. Care Notes may also be found on patient care floors.

Prayer Request

Prayer request boxes are available around Mary Greeley and were expanded beyond the Interfaith Chapel and added to inpatient floors in the west patient tower and the Israel Family Hospice House Chapel. 

Any visitor, patient, family member or employee may submit a prayer request. Names are optional, so prayer requests can be anonymous if you so choose.
