The Miriam Hospital
The Miriam Hospital opened its doors in 1926 to provide care to all of Rhode Island’s citizens. Its unique foundations and values were based upon Jewish principles. The Miriam continues to view its mission as one of providing excellent care while maintaining and honoring the links to its Jewish heritage. It prizes the feeling of community that is generated between the staff, patients, and the neighborhood.
The Miriam is a 247-bed acute adult care facility, which specializes in cardiac care and oncology. It maintains outpatient clinics, runs community forums, and is one of the teaching hospitals connected to the Brown University School of Medicine. As a part of Rhode Island Hospital, the Miriam is served by a full-time Director of Spiritual Care, two part-time staff chaplains, and a full-time CPE Supervisor. In addition, TMH has a well-staffed volunteer team of Catholic priests, deacons, and eucharistic ministers who serve the hospital five days a week. Our Chaplains, Rabbis, and an Imams are on 24-hour call to respond to the pastoral needs of patients.
