Good Samaritan Medical Center Presents Donation to Make-A-Wish

Medical Center Honors 50th Anniversary by Raising Money for Children’s Foundation

Good Samaritan Medical Center president, Harrison Bane, presented a donation to Jo-Anne Spillane, Vice President of Corporate Alliances and Events for Make-a-Wish Massachusetts and Rhode Island on Tuesday July 17, 2018.

Good Samaritan Medical Center recently completed a fundraising campaign to benefit Make-A-Wish of Massachusetts and Rhode Island. The hospital set a goal to raise $8,000 – the average cost of one wish – and met that goal through donations from employees, the Medical Staff, Steward Medical Group, and Steward Health Care Network. The donation will be directed toward the wish of a local child.

“We were honored to partner with the Make-A-Wish Foundation of MA and RI in this effort,” said Harry Bane, President, Good Samaritan Medical Center. “As care givers we know all too well the impact an illness can have on a family and the importance of finding joy and celebration to help the healing process.” Ms. Spillane accepted the check and presented Mr. Bane with a framed print of a drawing made by a wish child.

Good Samaritan Medical Center is celebrating 50 years of caring for the community, The hospital has had several events to commemorate the anniversary including a mass with Cardinal Sean O’Malley and the unveiling of a memory wall. Additional events are being planned, please visit for event updates or follow the hospital on Facebook.
