Supporting Good Sam with Pride and Confidence

Christopher La Mendola, MD, is Chairman of the Department of Cardiothoracic Surgery and Director of The St. Francis Hospital Open Heart Surgery Program at Good Samaritan Hospital. He and his wife, Eileen, are also proud supporters of Good Samaritan Hospital Medical Center. In September 2014, Dr. and Mrs. La Mendola demonstrated their support with a generous sponsorship of the 52nd Annual Ball at which Dr. La Mendola was honored. “Providing comfort is a critical part of my job, and the job of our entire unit,” says Dr. La Mendola. “I think that is really something that makes us very different from most places. We have created a unit that is a family here on 4 North, and that is very, very important to the care of our patients. This wouldn’t be possible without the philanthropists and benefactors who are kind enough to devote their time, their energy and their money to a wonderful hospital like Good Sam.  It is with great pride and confidence that we support Good Sam!“
