Stories of Gratitude

“Knowing that we have such quality care, literally around the corner from my home, is extremely reassuring. Local hospitals, like Good Samaritan, rely on community support, both financially and through the continued use of its practitioners. Over the last few years, my wife and I have switched to many Bon Secours Medical Group practices because it provides a single point of reference that makes our continuity and coordination of care very easy.” — Larry Palant

“I want to keep saying, ‘Thank you,‘ over and over again,” said Rabbi Robert Lam. “I am alive and healthy because I got the care I needed at the right time and the right place. Charitable gifts to the hospital benefit all of us. Good Samaritan goes beyond saving the life of the patient. When they save one person, they save a whole family and a community.” — Rabbi Robert Lam
