Howard’s Story: Always Finding Ways to Give

“I wish I could personally thank every staff member who took care of me when I was a patient at Good Samaritan Hospital. So many wonderful people all came together to look after me,” said Nanuet resident Howard Krulik. 

Mr. Krulik shared his gratitude by making a financial gift to the Good Samaritan Hospital Foundation. “I am not wealthy, but I always find ways to give to charities,” he said. “I support Good Samaritan because it’s important to support our community hospital.”

As the number of coronavirus patients began to increase at an alarming rate in March 2020, Mr. Krulik was treated for another health issue at our Intensive Care Unit. He recalls feeling safe throughout his time here. He said that he also was very impressed with how the nurses were able to stay calm and compassionate under stressful circumstances.

Mr. Krulik said, “I used to be afraid to go to the hospital, but I’m not afraid at Good Sam. I’ve needed to rely a lot on its staff, and they’ve become family to me.  I’ll always be grateful that our local hospital provides such great care!”
