Body. Mind. Soul. All of these make a person who they are. Because of this, health isn’t solely about the physical body. Being healthy involves physical, emotional and mental well-being. This is why it’s important for healing to focus on all aspects of a person, rather than just the physical body.
Wyoming Medical Center isn’t only dedicated to healing your physical health. We are also dedicated to helping you heal your mind and soul as well, by caring for a broad range of spiritual and emotional needs. Whether you’re dealing with a health crisis, end-of-life decisions, or even death, WMC is dedicated to providing comforting spiritual care for your mind and soul.
Our professionally trained and experienced chaplains function as an integral part of our healthcare team. The pastoral and spiritual care services offered at Wyoming Medical Center include:
- Confidential pastoral care and spiritual counseling
- Spiritual assessment, intervention, comfort and nurture
- Emotional support of diagnosis, grief and end-of-life issues
- Non-judgmental listening
- Crisis intervention and staff debriefings
- Advocacy for patients and staff
- Consultation on Advance Directives, organ tissue donation and bioethical issues
- Providing resources of religious texts and spiritual literature
- Assisting in contacting local clergy for specific religious rituals or sacraments
Spiritual Care Availability
If you feel the need to see a chaplain, they will be available to you. Staff chaplains are on-site weekdays between 7 a.m. – 5 p.m. Evening and weekend emergencies are covered by on-call chaplains. If you are in need of immediate spiritual care services, you may call the paging operator at (307) 577-7201 and request a chaplain.
Our new chapel and spiritual care offices are located on the second floor of the McMurry West Tower just north of the sky lobby. This sacred space is open for prayer, meditation and reflection for persons of all faiths.
Chaplain Dave Mondle
Before becoming a staff chaplain at Wyoming Medical Center, Dave Mondle was an on-call volunteer chaplain here for nearly 18 years. He has a bachelor's degree from Platte Valley Bible College (now Summit Christian College.)
Dave previously ministered at Richard Street Christian Church and worked in ground maintenance at Casper College. He has been a volunteer chaplain with the Casper Fire Department since 1990 and served in that role in a variety of ways. He was a member of Natrona County Critical Incident Stress Debriefing team, aided with death notifications, and led prayers at 9/11 Memorial services.
Dave is married with three adult children. Dave plays multiple instruments including guitar, piano, harmonica, banjo and mandolin.
All of our on-call community chaplains have clinical pastoral education and in-depth hospital ministry training. These dedicated volunteers cover the evening and weekend emergency chaplaincy needs on a rotation basis.
