Hospital Chaplaincy

A full time Hospital Chaplain is funded jointly by Albury Wodonga Health, Albury Wodonga Private and the Anglican Diocese of Wangaratta. The Chaplain overseas the four main hospitals in Albury and Wodonga, assisted by a team of trained pastoral care practitioners.

The pastoral carers are rostered on wards which they visit weekly and in one of these hospitals with the view of bringing the peace of God to the bedside of each patient. This is done by practicing the art of focused and reflective listening, and assisting the patient to share some of the issues which are on their heart.
