Medical Technology mends the body; Spiritual Care heals the soul.
The Lord has heard my plea for help;
The Lord accepts my prayer.

San Martin Campus Chapel
Each St. Rose Dominican Hospitals campus features a beautiful chapel, open 24/7, where patients, family and friends of all faiths can spend time praying or thinking. "Quiet Rooms" with comfortable furnishings are also available for use by patients and families who need quiet and privacy.
St. Rose offers a service called the Prayer Network. Patients and family members can make a prayer request through the GetWellNetwork system in your room. Prayer requests go out to Prayer Network members and are offered up in one of our Chapel services.
If you are outside the hospital and would like prayers to be offered for a loved one staying here, simply write to SRDHPrayerNetwork@chw.edu. All personal information is removed before the request is sent to our prayer members.
May you be in God's healing love.
Rose de Lima.
