Mike, I really feel for you being the only chaplain in a 365-bed hospital plus the other sites!!! Helps me realize how blessed we are at our hospital and the pastoral care staffing we have. Money seems to be the bottom-line for your hospital and pastoral care does not bring in any revenue. And you are a for-profit hospital. I affirm you in the presence you are for those you encounter each day. Am thinking of the Starfish Story.
