For Family & Visitors

Even if you’re not the patient, a trip to the hospital can be overwhelming as you wait to hear about the condition of your loved one. At Good Samaritan Medical Center, we want you to feel empowered every step of the way.

Families and friends who take an engaged and proactive approach play a vital role in the patient’s recovery process. You can help by taking care of important tasks and making note of complex instructions.

As a familiar presence in the patient’s life, you provide comfort and reassurance during a difficult time. The best thing you can do to help is to stay informed throughout the patient’s stay, from diagnostics and through treatment and follow-up.
