Office of Pastoral Care
At the Good Samaritan Hospital we recognize the importance of spiritual
awareness and religious affiliation and practice in health and healing.
The Department of Pastoral Care is a resource for spiritual counsel and
religious observance for all patients no matter their race, sexual identity,
ethnicity, national origin, language, or religion.
The Reverend Jerry R. Anderson, an Episcopal priest, is director of the
Department of Pastoral Care. His full-time colleagues are Sister Yolanda
Vega, a Catholic religious, and the Reverend Dr. Ronald David, an Episcopal
priest. We have volunteer Korean speaking chaplains who are available
to minister Korean patients in particular.
