Every child is a precious gift to be loved and cared for with the best resources possible. Good Samaritan had a vision – to fulfill a community need for the pediatric population by creating specialized and critical care services.
Comprehensive services were built around the long established Pediatric Unit, starting with the addition of the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit. The medical talent of the critical care specialists and the pediatric subspecialists added a new dimension to the established expertise. The continuum of care came full circle with the opening of the first Pediatric Emergency Department in Suffolk County and the multifaceted Center for Pediatric Specialty Care. These separate areas work in tandem to provide the highest quality health care to the community’s infants and children.
The entire pediatric staff is trained and dedicated to working exclusively with children. All are well aware that children are not little adults, but people with unique needs. Medical equipment designed for this age group, hospital rooms and waiting areas created for a child’s sensibilities, along with empathetic care for the smallest of patients all point to the Medical Center’s commitment to provide for this population.
The reputation as a Medical Center of distinction is based not only on the exceptionally skilled physicians and staff, but also on the availability of the latest medical technology. This combination of resources benefits newborns to adolescents as well as offering hope and reassurance to their families.
