Chaplains are called upon many times a day to help bring peace, care and compassion to patients and families. IU Health Methodist and University Hospital team members sometimes also need this type of care during their shifts. Medical staff members look forward to chaplains bringing the Tranquility Cart to their units. The cart is filled with rejuvenating beverages, snacks, treats and small items such as lip balm.
Chaplain L. Vern Farnum said, “The chocolate and lip balm go fast!”
