Support Samaritan Emergency Relief

Your gift today will support our staff, patients and communities during the COVID-19 crisis.

Welcome to Good Samaritan Hospital Foundation

The Good Samaritan Hospital Foundation is committed to supporting Good Samaritan Regional Medical Center, its patients and their loved ones, as well as the health and well-being of those who live and work in the community.

Since our inception in 1975, we have helped to fund medical equipment for the hospital, enhance program services, provide financial support for patient and community wellness programs, and help low-income individuals obtain medical care. We cannot do this without the generous contributions from our hospital staff, friends, neighbors and businesses. For this, we are truly grateful!

For more information, please contact Darrel Kau, executive director, at

Women Investing in Samaritan Health (WISH)

Since 2004, local women have been supporting the health care needs of area women and children and celebrating the growing impact of women as philanthropists. Working with the Good Samaritan Hospital Foundation, these women are a part of WISH, which features two major components:

  • Collective philanthropy: Each participant donates an equal amount to a fund, which is distributed to local projects that benefit women and children for patient care provided by Samaritan. WISH participants develop fund distribution criteria, investigate projects firsthand and award funds personally with the help of the foundation.
  • Education and celebration events: The group gathers at least once a year for an event designed to educate, empower, and inspire.

Since its inception in 2004, WISH has granted more than $380,600 to support equipment, projects and programs that benefit the healthcare needs of local women and children.

In 2018 and 2019, combined, WISH funded requests totaling $127,919. Highlights include funding for:

  • lymphedema compression garments
  • fetal monitors
  • a childbirth simulator
  • a neonatal resuscitation mannequin and two infant intubation trainers
  • a phototherapy system for newborns
  • the launch of the Samaritan CenteringPregnancy program
  • the ArtsCare program for youth at the Johnson Teen Center
  • youth and family cooking and fitness programming and much more.

Additionally, WISH led the way with a $70,000 award to remodel the bathrooms and replace flooring of two patient rooms as part of the Center for Women and Families’ Labor and Delivery, Post-Partum Unit’s complete renovation of thirteen bathrooms. Modern, accessible bathrooms enhance the patient rooms and provide a welcoming space for new families.

I travel 140 miles for each of my appointments. When you consider the time, gas and co-pay, seeking cancer care is expensive. Receiving my Lymphedema supplies was a very reminder that these trips are worthwhile. My insurance does not cover the equipment I need and if not for WISH, I would have had to pay out-of-pocket. Your kindness makes a difference and your efforts touched my heart.
Karen Shafer, Four year breast cancer survivor & Lymphedema grant recipient

Help Us Reach Our Goal!

Our goal is to get 100 WISH members to join together to support the health of women & children in our community!
