The Chaplain Services Department at RMC is staffed by a host of volunteers under the direction of Chaplain Jim Wilson. The ministry provides an outreach in the hospital as well as the community at large through:

  • ministry to patients, family members, and staff by Daytime Chaplain Volunteers, On-Call Chaplains and Chaplain Wilson
