When the Sisters of Charity founded the Good Samaritan Hospital of Cincinnati, they created an institution whose mission was to bring Christianity to others through teaching and caring of the sick. Education has been an essential part of Good Samaritan since 1858 when it accepted it first "interne," John Shaw Billings, a surgeon who later became a founder of Johns Hopkins Hospital. From pre-Civil War days to now, Good Samaritan has remained dedicated to its enduring values of patient care, education and research.
Today, Good Samaritan Hospital continues to be an exceptional leader in these three areas. Good Samaritan Hospital's commitment to education extends through three outstanding residency programs — obstetrics and gynecology, internal medicine, and general surgery.
Dedicated to Patient-Centered Care
A residency at Good Samaritan Hospital puts you in an environment that is medically and technologically challenging with a strong focus on both patient care and research. Equipped with an anatomy laboratory and other research facilities, Good Samaritan Hospital offers residents a unique opportunity to pursue many kinds of academic research while working in a community hospital. With its consistently high board passage rate and placement record for post-residency fellowships, and a long history of graduates with outstanding careers in private practice, research and education, a Good Samaritan residency is a solid building block for a physician's future.
Clinical Experience in an Integrated Setting
Located in the heart of Cincinnati, Good Samaritan Hospital is one of the largest private teaching and tertiary care institutions in Ohio. A 750-bed hospital, Good Samaritan admits more than 21,000 patients annually and is nationally recognized for its philosophy toward patient care and commitment to staying abreast of the most recent technological advances in medicine.
As a resident at Good Samaritan, you'll be working in a hospital with a reputation for leadership in education, research and technology. Yet the primary focus of the residency program is on clinical practice, giving resident physicians ample time to work with and learn from patients.
Good Samaritan boasts a Level III Perinatal Center and delivers more babies than any other single hospital in Ohio. The hospital operates a regional Rehabilitation Center with inpatient and outpatient services accredited by CARF in six specialties.
The nation's first labor/delivery/recovery (LDR) rooms were established here, as well as Cincinnati's first Rehabilitation Medicine Department and Spinal Deformities Center.
The Neurosurgery section provides the latest advances in the treatment of neurological disorders. More than 900 neurological procedures are performed annually.
Good Samaritan is a full-service, integrated cardiac center. Open-heart surgery is supported by innovations like the minimally invasive surgical procedure and the left ventricular support device for potential transplant candidates. The center is known for research in the development of pacemakers and drug therapy.
