Reaching Out to Our Community
For more than 60 years, Good Samaritan has been a cornerstone of the community, not only because of the health care we provide but also thanks to the range of outreach activities we offer. Good Samaritan’s free community lectures and screenings help educate the community, raise awareness, promote wellness and explain risk factors, methods of diagnosis and treatments.
Good Samaritan University Community Lectures
Good Samaritan’s free community lectures emphasize wellness by featuring our expert health care professionals who provide information on timely health-related topics. Lectures may be held at the hospital or at community-based locations.
Various free screenings are offered throughout the year at Good Samaritan. Screenings provide critical information and may alert participants to their risk of developing preventable or treatable diseases. Blood pressure, cholesterol, glaucoma, skin cancer, prostate cancer, head and neck cancer, and other screenings are routinely held both at the hospital and within the community.
Good Samaritan holds three annual blood drives. To donate blood, you must be at least 17 years old (16 with parents’ permission), weigh a minimum of 110 pounds and bring valid identification. Donors can prepare to donate by eating regular meals and drinking plenty of fluids.
We're Where You Live, Play and Shop...
Throughout the year, Good Samaritan staff can be found at various community events and locations, providing education and information on a variety of services. General information, medical staff directories, health education and event details are distributed to the community.
