Albany - Whether suffering from a life threatening illness or supporting a sick family member, having to spend time in a hospital can be the scariest time in many people's lives. One South Georgia hospital is trying to make sure your spiritual needs are met during this critical time.

Phoebe Putney's Clinical Pastoral Education Program is the newest accredited program of its kind in the state. In this program, ministers are specially trained to deal with emotional needs of the sick and their families. "Being in the hospital or having a family member in the hospital is a frightening thing," said Dick Denson, PPMH Chaplain. "We want the ministers to have the best training possible to make this time a little easier."

The Clinical Pastoral Education Program is an 18 week course. It is open to ministers and laypeople.
