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. Though our staff come from specific religious traditions, as chaplains we visit and accompany all patients, families, and staff, respecting their personal values, spiritual preferences, or religious identities.

The Department of Pastoral Care is staffed by the Rev. Michael S. Bell, an Episcopal priest who serves as department director; the Reverend Jana Milhon-Martin, an Episcopal priest who serves as our Supervisor for Clinical Pastoral Education; and two bi-lingual (English-Spanish) lay Roman Catholic chaplains, Symeon Yee and Leticia Delgado, who visit and accompany patients and staff throughout the hospital. Additionally, an Episcopal deacon, the Rev. Robert Sammis, is at the hospital weekly to visit with patients and staff. This team also maintains relationships with other volunteer chaplains, chaplain interns, and pastoral visitors from a variety of religious backgrounds who 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.
