A Message From The CAO

Nancy Simmons_webAt Good Samaritan Hospital Medical Center, patients are our highest priority.  Founded more than 50 years ago by the Daughters of Wisdom, Good Sam has served the community by offering the finest inpatient and outpatient services, along with free educational programs, health screenings and more.  The not-for-profit hospital provides millions of dollars in charity care each year, in addition to funding scholarships for local youths and sustaining nearby health clinics for the medically underserved and financially distressed.  

As a Magnet® designated hospital, Good Samaritan provides the highest level of nursing care available.  With the Joint Commission Gold Seal of Approval™ and honors such as Center of Excellence designation for breast imaging, bariatric surgery and sleep apnea, Good Samaritan delivers the advanced care needed in the region.  The hospital has earned accreditation with commendation in all eight areas and the Outstanding Achievement Award three consecutive times, nine years in a row, from the American College of Surgeons Commission on Cancer.  Also, Good Samaritan has three-year/full accreditation from the National Accreditation Program for Breast Centers and is the first facility in Suffolk County with 3-D digital tomosynthesis for improved breast cancer detection.  Additionally, it is the first hospital on the south shore of Suffolk offering da Vinci® robotic-assisted gynecologic surgical services.  

Our expert physicians, nurses and other staff are committed to safeguarding your well-being.  On this site, you can find a physician, learn about the many patient-focused programs and explore the specialized services available to you and your family.  Please visit our Community Health section for information on Good Samaritan’s free lectures, wellness fairs and other events in your community.  Please be assured that I wish you and yours the best of health.
