Patients and Families

Beth Lenegan, PhD, Director of Pastoral Care at Roswell Park, has been elected to the Board of Directors of the National Association of Catholic Chaplains.

Dear Roswell Park Families:

The Pastoral Care staff at Roswell Park Comprehensive Cancer Center would like to extend our services to you and your family. These services are open to all patients, regardless of your religious affiliation, whether you are in hospital, at home or another facility.

Members of the Pastoral Care staff regularly visit patients while they are in-hospital and are able to offer on-going support as needed. We would like to continue this supportive presence to patients and family members at the time of discharge as well as to our patients who are being treated in the clinics.

Also, we would like to serve as a bridge between yourself and your spiritual community. I encourage you to notify your faith community if you are admitted and would like someone to visit you or if you would like to be included on a prayer list. If you are not connected with a particular community, the pastoral care staff can offer the support you may need and if desired, connect you with a faith community.

I invite you to continue to look at our web site to see what services and resources are available through the Pastoral Care Department. If at any time you would like to speak with any staff in Pastoral Care, you can contact us at (716) 845-8051.
