Built in 2011, Good Samaritan’s Emergency Department allows the medical center to provide world class, patient-centered care in the heart of the community it serves by providing:

  • 42 private rooms, including six fast-track bays
  • A two-bay trauma room
  • Cardiac care room

Good Samaritan is one of the only area hospitals to offer primary angioplasty, a procedure which opens blocked coronary arteries that cause a heart attack. It also is a Massachusetts Department of Public Health designated stroke center, offering thrombolytic therapy – a drug that can open closed arteries to the brain during a stroke. Both primary angioplasty and stroke team care are available around the clock for prompt treatment.

In order to make your treatment more efficient, our Emergency Department offers a separate express care unit designed for treating less serious illness and injury.
