For Visitors & Family
At Danville Regional Medical Center, our focus is first and foremost on providing quality care to all our patients. Danville Regional is committed to patient-centered care. We believe that involving patients in their own care improves outcomes and encourages them to better understand their care management. Patients and/or family members (care partners) are encouraged to speak up and participate with questions and concerns about patient care and treatment.

These compassionate men and women have extensive training in theology, psychology and healthcare ministry. Chaplains are available 24 hours a day for patients and families of all faith traditions.
