Located in the new West Tower, the Nemmers Family Chapel is open 24/7.

The Diantha Ann Hoffman Memorial Chapel, located near Condell's main lobby, is open around the clock for prayer and meditation.

Spiritual care provides a comforting role in the patient's healing process. Our commitment to spiritual care is exemplified through our hospital chaplains who are available 24/7. Condell's hospital chaplains respect each patient's and family's unique cultural, spiritual, and psychosocial needs.
