Howard’s Story: Good Samaritan Hospital Patient Treated for Kidney Ailment During COVID-19 Pandemic 

As the pandemic began to spread at an alarming rate in March 2020, Howard Krulik was admitted to the Intensive Care Unit at Good Samaritan Hospital for a life-threatening kidney disorder. He said that that he felt safe throughout his time in the hospital, and that the staff were extraordinary in taking great measures to very quickly separate patients with COVID-19 and those with other healthcare needs. He also said that he was impressed with how the nurses were able to stay calm and compassionate under stressful circumstances.

Howard continues to come to Good Samaritan for care. He 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!”

Howard shared his gratitude by making a financial gift to the Good Samaritan Hospital Foundation. “

“The staff at Good Samaritan Hospital saved my life! 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.
