Aguilar leads a staff of four professional chaplains, an administrative manager and about 60 spiritual care volunteers in three hospitals, Inter-Community Hospital in Covina, Queen of the Valley Hospital in West Covina, Foothill Presbyterian Hospital in Glendora, hospice and home care and a network of more than 16 primary and specialty care locations.
“In my daily routine, I’m involved in overseeing the spiritual care of 635 hospital beds,” he said. “This involves each of the professional chaplains to be rounding on patients, answering requests; assisting trauma’s and end-of-life situations, along with the care and support of over 3,500 employees. Chaplains are available 24 /7 and receive calls around the clock. I personally round at all three facilities on a regular basis.”
