A century ago, a vision for health care in our community began to develop. In the year of 1914, the only hospital facilities available for patients in the West Palm Beach area were located in a five-room cottage on Third Street near the F.E.C. Railroad tracks.

Realizing that a problem existed, a group was organized in 1917 as the Good Samaritan Hospital Association with the idea of planning the construction of a new hospital to expand upon the overcrowded emergency hospital.

Good Samaritan opened on May 19, 1920, with four physicians and men’s and women’s wards separated by curtains.
