How We Help

Foundations > Good Samaritan Foundation

At Good Samaritan Foundation, we help you help others. As the philanthropic entity for the Good Samaritan Hospital region (including Good Samaritan Western Ridge, TriHealth Evendale Hospital, and more), Good Samaritan Free Health Center, and Good Samaritan College of Nursing and Health Science, there are many causes—and lives—you can impact.






Good Samaritan Hospital

Philanthropy makes a difference. Click here to watch a video about the impact of donor-supported cameras for the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU).

Good Samaritan Hospital was founded by generosity. It was the Sisters of Charity of Cincinnati who began Good Samaritan in 1852 to care for everyone who entered our doors. That generosity, through gifts of all sizes, is what keeps Good Samaritan an innovative leader in compassionate care today.

You can join us in caring for our community through supporting the following initiatives:

  • TriHealth Cancer Institute at Good Samaritan Hospital: Did you know that TriHealth diagnoses and treats one in three cancer patients in the tristate area? Help patients and families throughout their journey of cancer diagnosis to survival.





  • Behavioral Health: As the longest standing inpatient Behavioral Health Department in the region, Good Samaritan’s Department of Behavioral Health Services provides a vital resource as inpatient beds in our community continue to shrink. In addition to inpatient and outpatient services for a full range of diagnoses, the department is also on the front lines of the opioid epidemic.
  • Medical Education: Good Samaritan is the oldest and largest private teaching hospital in Greater Cincinnati, and we continue to educate and empower the future physicians of our community.
  • And more! Please let us know about an area close to your heart and we will help you make a difference.

Good Samaritan Free Health Center

Founded in 2011, the Good Samaritan Free Health Center provides primary, specialty, and dental care, as well as behavioral health and support services, to adults without medical insurance and no other access to health care. Care is provided primarily by our large volunteer network and small core staff. We are the largest urban free health center in the State of Ohio by volume, and the only free health center in southwest Ohio. Because we do not bill for any care or services, the Free Health Center is 100% philanthropically funded. It is only because of generous donations that more than 2,000 individuals received care this past fiscal year.
