Ambulance Replacement Project
The Good Samaritan Services Department needs to replace six aging ambulances within the fleet. The units cover 911 calls, long distance transports within the coverage area, and can be seen on standby at structure fires and home football games. Have you or someone you love needed assistance from our EMS department? By giving to the Ambulance Replacement Project, our community and grateful patients have the opportunity to contribute to the programs or services that are close to your heart.
Evelyn Watts Endowed Scholarship
Evelyn Watts retired after nearly 43 years with Good Samaritan in clinical positions in Infection Control, Health Information Management and Care Management. To honor her legacy of service and contributions to the nursing profession, her twin sons created the Evelyn Watts Endowed Scholarship through the Good Samaritan Foundation. This scholarship will benefit students pursuing a career in health care. We are tremendously grateful for Evelyn's contributions to our mission and to her family for honoring her legacy of caring in such a meaningful way. Fellow Good Samaritan employees, family and friends can also show their appreciation with a donation to the newly created endowed scholarship by visiting our donation page.
