ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Palmyra Medical Center is implementing a more holistic approach to healthcare. Friday the hospital rededicated its chapel as part of a new Pastoral Care program.

Chaplain Don Chapman will head up the program, designed to help bring both spiritual and physical healing.

He said, "This is a place where patients families come seeking the healing. Not only for their loved ones, but for themselves too."

In the past, pastoral services at Palmyra were primarily provided by a patient's personal minister. Now, they can use their own minister or seek council from Chapman.
