Community Clergy

Community clergy are encouraged to visit their members when they are hospitalized. Patient room numbers may be obtained at the Information Desk near the main entrance in each hospital.

Clergy ID badge

Due to COVID-19, the clergy badge program has been temporarily suspended. Please check our current visitor policies.

The Clergy ID Badge system is administered by the Pastoral Care Department on behalf of all Charleston area hospitals. The badge entitles the clergy person to free parking at all area hospitals while visiting their members. Badges are administered by the Pastoral Care Office at (843) 402-2856 located in Suite 313 East Medical Office Building at St. Francis Hospital. Badges are made on Tuesday’s and Thursday’s 8:00 am – 10:45 am and then again from 12:30 pm – 2:00 pm. Please download and complete application.


Roper Hospital
Effective June 10, 2019 Roper Hospital implemented new control gates for parking in the Lucas Street Garage.

These new gates will enable us to better regulate who can access our parking areas and ensure parking spaces for our patients, visitors and teammates.

Clergy members who are visiting patients at Roper Hospital will pull a ticket and have it validated at Valet parking, which is near the main entrance of the hospital on Calhoun Street, from 6 a.m.- 9 p.m. If you are here after 9 p.m., you will need to get a validation sticker from the staff on the unit you are visiting.

Clergy who are visiting patients at MUSC will need to park in the following garages and not in Roper Hospital garages.

Ashley Rutledge Parking Garage - entrances on Ashley and Rutledge Avenues
Courtenay Drive Parking Garage at Ashley River Tower (ART) - entrance just off of Courtenay Drive and Charleston Center Drives
