Parkridge Health System Chaplain Mark Davis recently spoke with Chattanooga Times Free Press features editor Shawn Ryan about day-to-day life as a hospital chaplain.
"[People] think that my job is hard, but my job is no harder for me than their job is for them," Davis told the Times Free Press. "I'm made for this, so this doesn't stress me. I'm lifting people up every day. That's pretty happy."
Davis tends to the spiritual needs of families and patients at facilities within the Parkridge Health System family of hospitals, but his job description is far more comprehensive. He is often called upon to defuse tense situations, such as will disputes and conflicts regarding end-of-life decisions.
