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.

To request pastoral counsel or to receive religious services and/or sacraments contact the Reverend Jerry Anderson at 213 482 2736. From within the hospital dial extension 2736 directly. Sister Yolanda can be reached at 213 482 2755; and the Reverend Ronald David can be reached at 213 482 2736. For evening or on weekend emergencies please contact the Nursing Staff Office at 213 977 2085.
