After several months of remodeling, Banner Boswell Medical Center in Sun City has reopened its Meditation Chapel inside the hospital’s main entrance.

The remodeling project was done to reflect the diversity of the spiritual culture of patients, visitors and staff.

The chapel has a new water feature, an original triptych painting representing the 10 major world religions. The remodeling project also included the replacement of pews with individual chairs to create an atmosphere for individual meditation and reflection.

The chapel features a library of more than 40 pamphlets on various supportive topics and a special “faith box,” where handwritten requests for prayers can be placed for the chaplain. The chapel is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

The reopening is just in time for this week’s observance of Ash Wednesday, which marks for Christians the beginning of the Lenten season leading to Easter Sunday.

In addition to providing ashes for patients and staff throughout the hospital, Banner Boswell’s Spiritual Care ministers will distribute ashes between 11:30 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. Wednesday in the Meditation Chapel.

Banner Boswell is located at 10401 W. Thunderbird Blvd.
