About Good Samaritan Hospital Medical Center

Good Samaritan Hospital Medical Center, a member of Catholic Health Services of Long Island, is a 537-bed (including 100 nursing home beds), not-for-profit hospital serving the community on the south shore of Long Island in West Islip, New York. A premier health care facility, Good Samaritan’s high-quality medical services extend across the continuum of care to all disciplines, both for inpatients and outpatients. 

A stellar reputation exists for Good Samaritan’s first-rate oncology, cardiology, orthopaedic, women’s, respiratory, neurosurgical and surgical care.  All are complemented by an array of state-of-the-art diagnostic imaging capabilities that includes a Positron Emission Tomography/Computed Tomography (PET/CT) scanner and a sophisticated Department of Imaging Services. The number of visits to the Emergency Department will again surpass 95,000 this year, making Good Samaritan one of the largest providers of emergency services on Long Island. The Ambulatory Surgery Department, where patients have same day procedures, continues to treat an average of almost 300 patients each week. More than 29,000 patients a year are admitted for inpatient services.

Additionally, services for women are available in obstetrics, gynecology and maternal/child care as well as diagnostic imaging for cancer screening and treatment. Pediatric patients are treated in the Pediatric Emergency Department and, if necessary, admitted to the Pediatric Unit or the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit. Pediatric sub-specialists are available around the clock to support these medical services.

Rehabilitation services, which now includes physical, occupational and speech therapies, moved into expanded area in 2008. The Department added a Pediatric Physical and Occupational Therapy Program, Adult and Pediatric Speech Therapy Services and also a specific program for cancer patients suffering from fatigue.

To support the physical, emotional and spiritual impact of advanced disease, Good Samaritan has incorporated its pastoral and palliative services into the comprehensive care provided.  In 2004, a nurse-driven palliaitve care consultation program was initiated, and since, has grown to include a hospital wide consultation service.  The Palliative Care program features an 11-bed, dedicated acute palliative care inpatient unit, and outpatient clinic and a strong presence throughout the continuum of care.  Partnerships have also been made with home care, dialysis and long-term care facilities.  More than 600 patients annually are supported through this initiative.

The need for expert cardiology care has steadily increased in the community. The cardiology team has responded by being one of the few community hospitals in New York state to perform primary and elective angioplasty.  The angioplasty program is a collaborative effort among the Medical Center’s cardiology, emergency and special care departments.  Additionally, the hospital has also been granted approval from the State Hospital Review and Planning Council to develop an open heart surgery program, allowing St. Francis Hospital, The Heart Center®, to bring its award-winning surgical program to the area. 

The talented medical staff of 850 physicians, 1,300 nurses and more than 2,000 support staff is committed to offering the best in diagnostic, treatment and prevention of conditions and illnesses. Care is administered for the individual’s physical needs while always addressing the emotional and spiritual needs of every patient.
