Pikeville Medical Center offers patients, families and our staff chaplain coverage. A dedicated team of full and part time chaplains, staff and volunteers are available for any crisis or spiritual need that might arise. Our goal is to be available to all those who come through our doors. The Chapel, located on the second floor of the May Tower, is open 24 hours a day for prayer, reflection and meditation. It is a quiet and reverent atmosphere for people of all faiths.

You can contact or leave a message for the chaplain on duty 24 hours a day at extension 3197.


Each day begins with a hospital wide overhead devotion and prayer around 9:00 a.m. and each day is closed with an appropriate evening devotion prior to 9:00 p.m.


The Pikeville Medical Center Chapel is located on the second floor of the May Tower. The Chapel is a place for weekly worship services, special Holy Day Services, song services, weddings, memorial services, prayer groups and more. A state-of-the-art lift allows us to perform baptisms directly from a bed, if approved by the attending physician. All the activities of a local congregation are performed in our chapel and meditation room. You will always find a quiet place for prayer and reflection with stained glass, controlled lighting, sound and a chaplain available to assist you.
