Chapel and Clergy Services

The hospital cares about your spiritual needs as well as your medical needs and uses volunteer spiritual caregivers to assist in meeting them. Clergy members visit the hospital frequently and some on a daily basis. If you specified a place of worship during admission/registration, it allows your own clergy to know you are hospitalized in some cases. If you request it, your nurse or one of the spiritual caregivers can arrange for a visit by your own pastor, priest, rabbi or spiritual leader. If you prefer, a visit by a chaplain can also be arranged as described below. Feel free to ask for a visit at any time during your stay with us.

The nondenominational chapel on the first floor is always open for family and your friends. We encourage the use of this quiet and beautiful chapel.

Spiritual care is available to you and your family 24 hours a day through the ministry of the “On-Call Clergy” program provided by the Westerly- Pawcatuck Clergy Association. Ask your nurse or one of the spiritual caregivers to request a chaplain visit. You can always call the hospital’s chaplaincy services office at (401) 348-3979. If no one is available when you call, leave a message, which will be checked.

Visitor Policy

Westerly Hospital does not have visiting hours because we do not consider family and friends as visitors. They are vital members of the healthcare team in our patient and family centered partnership. We try very hard to base visits around patient and family needs. We recognize that visits by family and friends are an important part of a patient’s recovery.

  • Friends or family members who are ill should not visit.
  • Please keep in mind that visits may be interrupted if the patient needs to leave the room for treatment, x-rays, or other tests.
  • If the patient is being treated in their room, visitors may be asked to step out at the patient’s request.

Coffee and Sandwich Shop

Honey Dew Donut Shop, located just off the lobby, serves light meals, snacks, and beverages from 5:30am – 8pm, seven days a week.

Patient Privacy Rights

At Westerly Hospital, we respect the privacy and confidentiality of your health information. We may use and share your health information for purposes of treatment, payment and general administration in the delivery of your health care. Unless you object, we may use and disclose your name and location in our directory while you are a patient. A copy of the entire privacy notice is on our website.

As a patient, you have the following choices about disclosure of your name and location while you are a patient:

1. Your name and location will be included in our directory and available to people who ask for you by name, unless you opt out of the directory. Your clergy will have access to your religious affiliation even if they do not ask for you by name.
2. If you opt out of the directory, your name and location will not be available, except that your clergy will still have access to your religious affiliation even if they do not ask for you by name.
3. You can opt out of “religion”, and then your name and location will be available in the directory, but only for those people (including clergy) who ask for you by name.
4. If you do not want your name and location to be either in the directory or available to clergy, you should opt out of both the directory and “religion”.

If you believe your privacy rights have been violated, you can report your complaint to any of your care team members, your nursing director or any member of the hospital executive team. Or you may write a letter to the Office of Civil Rights:
