Celebrating Yvonne Boyd on Pastoral Care Week

Pastoral Care Week (Oct. 16-21) is an opportunity to recognize the wonderful work of our hospital chaplain, Yvonne Boyd. Through her calm and reassuring presence, she guides patients, their families and our WLA employees through both difficult and celebratory times. “My role is to help patients and their families move through hospitalization and help them identify their own spiritual resources to redirect or lessen their anxiety, fears and stress,” Boyd says. She also offers prayer when and where it’s needed, caring for everybody’s spiritual needs. Boyd also plays an important role that compliments the interdisciplinary clinical team. While she works closely with the ICU and Palliative Care teams, she is a resource for our entire West LA community. When it comes to our patients, she is a very important part of their care experience. “I work collaboratively with our staff and physicians to understand a patient’s history and contextualize the patient’s health challenges. This helps informs the overall approach to this patients’ care,” she says. Boyds adds that she’s fortunate to be able to spend time with patients, families and employees to “hear their stories and walk them through their fears and anxieties,” adding that she also loves helping people celebrate “when they have overcome obstacles and experienced daily miracles.” When Boyd isn’t caring for our West LA community, she can be found playing Scrabble, traveling or officiating at friends’ weddings (the next wedding is in France).
