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 and healing. The Department of Pastoral Care is a resource for spiritual counsel and religious observance for all 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 full-time colleagues are Sister Yolanda Vega, a Spanish-speaking Catholic religious (Sisters of Social Service), and The Reverend Dr. Ronald David, an Episcopal priest. We have volunteer Korean-speaking chaplains who are available to minister Korean patients in particular as well as pastoral interns from a variety of religious backgrounds.

To request pastoral counsel or to receive religious services and/or sacraments contact our team at (213) 482-2739. From within the hospital dial extension 2739 directly. Sister Yolanda can be reached at (213) 482-2755; and the Reverend Ronald David can be reached at (213) 482 2736.
