Our impact

Since 1977, the Women of Good Samaritan annual membership gifts have raised more than $1.8 million to support projects that change lives. Over the years, these caring women have purchased critical hospital equipment, provided nursing student scholarships and assisted with funding meaningful endeavors, such as upgrades in the Family Birth Center, the Stenzel Garden Pavilion and Legacy Good Samaritan's innovative Urgent Care and Emergency Department.
