Ways to Give to Good Samaritan Hospital
Donations from our generous supporters help Good Samaritan Hospital deliver the highest level of quality care that our community deserves while also helping to advance and expand our services and programs. Donations can also help our health care heroes who work tirelessly each day to provide compassionate and excellent care to our patients and their loved ones.
Good Samaritan Parable
The Good Samaritan parable is one of the most beloved Gospel stories for young and old alike. The story is simple but speaks to the profound impact that our compassion and generosity can have even for strangers, some we may never meet. You do not need to be a doctor or nurse to play a role in the healing of others. You, too, can be a Good Samaritan and be a beacon of compassion and hope through philanthropy.
Impact of Donations
Our generous benefactors—including the extraordinary Guilds of Good Samaritan, individuals, foundations, corporations and community service organizations—have all left an indelible mark on the lives of our patients, physicians, nurses and employees. Donations have enabled the hospital to initiate new programs, purchase cutting-edge technology and modernize facilities.
Good Samaritan Hospital is proud to recognize all donors who contribute $1,000 or more annually as GSHMC Leadership Giving Society members. With your unwavering support, we continue to make tremendous progress in improving the quality, safety, and respect with which we deliver our care, using both innovative technology and hands-on compassion.

The generosity of donors around the holidays helps us to make the season brighter for children who are hospitalized and assists us as we care for these precious patients throughout the year.
In-kind donations are used to help celebrate birthdays, offer helpful distractions during difficult and painful procedures, and to provide comfort during the healing process.
