As a community hospital, Good Samaritan Medical Center treats all patients seeking emergency care, 24 hours per day, seven days per week. A staff of experienced nurses and highly-trained, board-certified emergency physicians, along with a wide network of specialists, provide expert adult and pediatric emergency and follow-up care to 54,000 patients each year.
Good Samaritan opened a brand new Emergency Department in the fall of 2011. The $30-million project allows the medical center to provide world class, patient-centered care in the heart of the community it serves.
The new ED includes:
Good Samaritan’s emergency department staff has expertise in diagnosing and treating a wide spectrum of acutely ill and injured patients. Supported by a pioneering 64-slice CT scanner, state-of-the-art cardiac monitors, and around-the-clock laboratory services, the most recent technology is available to assist with every emergency need.
We offer landmark therapy for treating acute heart attack and stroke. We are one of the only area hospitals to offer primary angioplasty, the treatment to open blocked coronary arteries that cause a heart attack. We are a DPH-designated stroke center, offering thrombolytic therapy (a drug that can open up closed arteries to the brain during a stroke). Both primary angioplasty and stroke team care are available around the clock. These modern therapies offer patients hope for improved outcomes.
In order to make your treatment more efficient, our emergency department offers a separate express care, a unit designed for treating less serious illness and injury (e.g., sore throats, sprains, etc.). In addition, we have introduced a rapid assessment program to speed up diagnostic testing and treatment.
We want to know how we're doing! If you receive a patient satisfaction survey after you return home, please complete and return it to us in the postage-paid envelope. Your comments and suggestions will help us serve you and others even better.
