You don't have to be religious to find the hospital chapel a soothing space.

The chapel is open 24 hours a day for meditation, prayer and quiet reflection. It is located on the first floor of University Hospital, near the East Elevators.

Several resources are available in the chapel for your use, such as Bibles, Qurans, Jewish prayers and booklets of sacred prayers and readings; daily devotionals and prayer cards in Spanish and English; and rosaries.
