Good Samaritan: Keeping You Safe

Good Samaritan Hospital will re-open all our services, including elective surgery, to the communities we serve as the prevalence of COVID-19 on Long Island decreases. 

Over the past several weeks, people with chronic health issues have postponed their check-ups, exams, or elective surgeries. Waiting months can turn something that’s not urgent into a critical situation, which is why we are resuming elective procedures.  

Your safety is our number one priority. Good Samaritan Hospital has implemented a series of new measures to ensure the well-being of you and our staff, including:

  • Pre-screening and testing for all patients. 
  • Prescreening and temperature monitoring for visitors and staff, following the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention guidelines.
  • All patients, staff and visitors will wear a mask at all times. Masks will be supplied, if needed.
  • Immediately isolating symptomatic patients, staff and visitors to dedicated areas.
  • Limiting visitors to our hospital.
  • Practicing social distancing protocols throughout the hospital and any offsite ambulatory facilities.
  • Telemedicine options are available.
  • Conducting intensive cleaning of all patient and common areas, using commercial-grade sanitizing steam.
  • Extensive purification of our hospital’s ventilation systems.

You can trust Good Samaritan Hospital to provide the care you need when you need it. We’re ready, we’re safe and waiting for you.
