VA Portland Health Care System
Chaplain Service and Chapel
Caring, competent and respectful spiritual care is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week from VAPORHCS Chaplains. We are leaders in providing patient centered care. If you wish to have a personal religious leader or faith group representative contacted, we can assist in arranging those visits.
Our chapels on the 3rd floor of the Portland Campus and in the Community Living Center at Vancouver are open 24 hours a day for meditation or quiet time. We hold meditation/mindfulness services daily at each campus. We look forward to assisting your with your spiritual needs while here. If you wish to speak with a chaplain, you can call our office at 503-220-8262, extension 57021, or you can call the operator by dialing 0 (zero) from in-house phone.
Chaplain Service provides the medical center with decedent affairs for all Veterans and families. We provide education and support for Veterans who wish to pre-plan their arrangements upon their death and information about accessing benefits for burial as well as a host of services available through the National Cemetery System. www.cem.va.gov
