On February 11, 2017, The Good Samaritans’ 33rd Annual Gala – Under the Big Top raised $524,000 to benefit the Good Samaritan Hospital Faculty Medical Center for Pregnancy and Women’s Health. The Faculty Medical Center is the primary outpatient training center for the Obstetrics and Gynecology Residency Program. It is also the primary provider of health care for Medicaid, underinsured, and uninsured patients in our community most affected by poor birth outcomes and infant mortality.
Proceeds were dedicated to the renovation of the Faculty Medical Center to create an efficient space to both improve patient outcomes and enhance the Residency Program experience. Funds also provided annual support to the Good Samaritan Free Health Center and Medical Education Research Fund. The video below details these tremendous initiatives.
