Good Samaritan Medical Center announced today it has completed a $350,000 renovation project on its 36-bed oncology unit, providing patients with a totally new interior design while they receive care from one of South Florida’s finest cancer teams.

The 34 private rooms and one semi-private room have been redesigned with a fresh, modern look. The décor incorporates soothing color palates, artwork, refinished walls, new flooring, shades and renovated bathrooms. Flat panel televisions complete every room.

“This is a very timely facelift for our oncology unit,” said Chief Executive Officer Paul Echelard. “We offer our patients some of the most advanced technology and innovative procedures in cancer care. Now their rooms reflect that same cutting-edge attitude.”

The hospital provides cancer services through the Helen and Harry Gray Cancer Institute, featuring the Miles M. Zisson Comprehensive Breast Center and the Ruth C. Heede Gamma Knife Center. The Cancer Institute’s approach combines a multi-disciplinary team of medical specialists, advanced technology and clinical research.

Earlier this year, the hospital added digital mammography with computer aided detection and MRI of the breast.

Good Samaritan Medical Center, part of Tenet’s Palm Beach Health Network, is a 333-bed acute care hospital located at 1309 North Flagler Drive in West Palm Beach. In addition to general medical services, Good Samaritan offers a broad range of specialty services, including oncology, orthopedics, obstetrics and cardiac medicine. The hospital also offers the Walter Newbern Suites, an all-private, upscale unit that combines quality medical care with personal comfort.

Good Samaritan is fully accredited by the Joint Commission on the Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations, the nation’s oldest and largest hospital accreditation agency.
