Just four years ago Good Samaritan opened its West Tower, which houses expanded intensive and progressive care units.  This latest addition to a growing campus was designed to take advantage of emerging technology coupled with a focus on the patient's comfort and recovery.

Near the West Tower, a new stand-alone Cancer Center provides medical and radiation oncology including leading-edge stereotactic radiosurgery, which allows the hospital to apply radiation with unprecedented precision.  The Cancer Center, accredited by the American College of Surgeons, was one of 16 hospitals nationwide to be selected by the National Cancer Institute for its Community Cancer Center program, giving patients access to some of the most advanced drugs and treatments available anywhere.

Good Samaritan's Richard H. Young Hospital is an 80-bed behavioral health facility offering inpatient, day and outpatient and partial hospitalization treatment for adults and adolescents age 14 and over.  Complete acute care and psychiatric counseling services are provided.

But this hospital is not merely about technology, buildings and certifications.  The physicians and staff blend dedication, skill, knowledge and experience with a high level of Midwestern caring to provide healing that is truly centered on the patient.
