Good Samaritan Hospital Brings Heart Health Awareness to the South Shore Mall


On Saturday, February 8, Good Samaritan Hospital hosted a free “Open Your Heart to Health” event at Westfield South Shore Mall in Bay Shore. Shoppers had the opportunity to meet cardiologists, open heart surgeons, registered dietitians, cardiology technologists and nurses offering information on cardiac health and prevention in addition to blood pressure, pulmonary function and cholesterol screenings. Participants experienced hands-on activities featuring cardiac procedures while also navigating their way through a larger-than-life inflatable heart.

In addition to a range of diagnostic and therapeutic cardiovascular services, Good Samaritan recently launched the St. Francis Hospital Open Heart Surgery Program at Good Samaritan. This unique program brings the world-class cardiovascular surgical care for which St. Francis, The Heart Center® is known to residents of Suffolk County by relocating an entire clinical team from St. Francis to Good Sam.
