Chaplain

Office of Pastoral Care

At Good Samaritan Hospital we recognize the importance of spirituality, sense of sacredness, and religious identity and practice in health, healing, and wellness. The Department of Pastoral Care is a resource for spiritual counsel and religious observance for all staff and patients no matter their age, race, ethnicity, national origin, language, sexual orientation, gender identity/expression, religion, or spiritual beliefs.

The Reverend Michael S. Bell, an Episcopal priest, is director of the Department of Pastoral Care. His colleagues are Sister Yolanda Vega, a Spanish-speaking sister of the Roman Catholic religious order Sisters of Social Service, and The Reverend Jana Milhon-Martin, an Episcopal priest who serves as our Supervisor-in-Training for Clinical Pastoral Education. Volunteer chaplains, chaplain interns, and pastoral visitors from a variety of religious backgrounds also visit with staff, patients, and families.

To request pastoral care, to receive religious services and/or sacraments, and/or to inquire about participating in Clinical Pastoral Education, please contact our team at (213) 482-2739. From within the hospital you can simply dial extension 2739.
