Our 60th Anniversary

In 1954, Saint Camillus Parish was founded and since that time has provided Catholic chaplains to LAC+USC Medical Center. In 1985, the parish boundaries were reworked and we became Saint Camillus Center for Pastoral Care. The chaplains’ full-time focus became the Los Angeles County-USC Medical Center, USC/Norris Comprehensive Cancer Center & Hospital, and USC University Hospital.
