Whether Christian, Jewish, Muslim, or any other religion, Pitt County Memorial Hospital will soon have a place for you to pray.
The hospital broke ground Thursday on a new interfaith chapel located at the front of the hospital.
The chapel will hold 75 to 100 people in a contemporary style assembly hall. It will be open twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week and is meant to serve the spiritual needs of patients, families and employees at the hospital. Seating inside of the chapel can be rearranged for different groups of worship. Those involved wanted to recognize that even staff need a place to gather their thoughts.
The $2.3 million construction cost will be paid for through private donations to the Pitt Memorial Hospital Foundation.
