BROCKTON RECEIVES $2.9 MILLION IN 2015 TAX REVENUE FROM GOOD SAMARITAN MEDICAL CENTER

Good Samaritan Medical Center, part of the Steward Health Care system (Steward), announced today that it paid $2,857,874 in taxes to Brockton for 2015, and an additional $9,619 to neighboring towns, making it one of the largest private taxpayers in the community. As one of the largest taxpayers in Brockton, Steward provides unrivaled financial support for local schools, first responders and municipal services. These taxes are crucial for Brockton, allowing it to pay for and support the equivalent of the average combined annual salaries of approximately 12 teachers, 14 police officers and 16 firefighters. In addition to being one of the largest taxpayers, Steward also remains one of the largest employers in Brockton, employing a total of 1780 people locally. Furthermore, Steward spent an additional $4.4 million in 2015 on community benefits programs for Brockton residents, including Obesity Prevention and Nutrition Education, Maternal-child Services and Support programs and Continuing Education for Health Professionals. “As a private hospital, Good Samaritan provides not only first-class care to local residents, it also provides a significant source of revenue to Brockton that contributes to the community’s overall quality of life,” said John A. Jurczyk, FACHE, President of Good Samaritan Medical Center. “Unlike many of the Boston-based hospitals that do not pay property taxes, as part of the Steward Health Care system, Good Samaritan provides millions in tax dollars locally.”
