Currently, the Rev. Dr. Micheal Smith serves as our professional chaplain to John H. Stroger, Jr. Hospital of Cook County. Micheal’s career path as an attorney, pastor and board certified chaplain have given him the ideal skill set to navigate the complexities of a county hospital in order to provide the highest level of spiritual care. Micheal rounds 5 units on a regular basis, but during the COVID-19 pandemic he has served hospital staff at all levels and in all locations.
Chaplain Micheal’s workload includes not only spiritual care support for patients and staff, but research into organ donation with Gift of Hope Foundation.
