Who This Serves:  All patients and Samaritan staff.

What:  Funding for equipment that exceeds Samaritan’s budgets. Priority is given to equipment that meets one or more of the following criteria.

  • Offers comfort without cost to the patient, i.e. patient lifts and blanket warmers.
  • Provides an essential community service but doesn’t generate enough revenue to be self‑supportive, i.e. cardiac rehabilitation and obstetric services.
  • Ensures residents can receive care in their own communities, i.e. adolescent physical therapy and bone scans.

Where:  Hospitals and clinics throughout Samaritan’s tri-county region of Benton, Lincoln and Linn counties.

When:  Ongoing.

Why:  Samaritan can fund approximately $30 to $40 million for medical equipment annually, which covers about one-third of all equipment requests every year.

Campaign Goal:  $1.5 million. 

Lead Foundations:  All Samaritan foundations.


“Our local foundation has generously supported our wound care clinic with essential equipment such as patient lifts and exam chairs, without which we could not deliver the same level of care to our patients.”

~Sandie Schaefer, Wound Care Nursing Supervisor at Samaritan Lebanon Community Hospital
