Pastoral Care

The staff of Bell Hospital recognized the role of clergy as a part of the healthcare team of each patient. Let your caregiver know if you would like a visit by local clergy. Bell is pleased to have an active Chaplaincy Committee, a hospital Chapel, and a Meditation Room.

The Bell Chaplaincy Committee consists of the following members:

Rev. Warren Geier
Head of Chaplaincy Committee
Bethany Lutheran Church, Ishpeming

Rev. Kenneth Lahners
Trinity Lutheran Church, Ishpeming

Rev. Carole Neitzel
Our Redeemer Lutheran Church, Champion

Rev. Virginia Eggert
Faith Lutheran Church, National Mine

Rev. JJ Mannschreck
Wesley United Methodist, Ishpeming

A small group of Bell employees attend a non-denominational prayer service every Wednesday in the Chapel from 10:15am - 10:30am. Please feel free to attend. Members who make up the chaplaincy committee rotate to attend and facilitate this weekly service. There is also a prayer intention box in the chapel which is encouraged to be used at any time by Bell employees, visitors and patients with any intentions they may want prayed for at the service.
