Ways Your Gifts Help
In 2010 Good Samaritan Hospital Foundation - Dayton distributed $800,000 in support of Good Samaritan Hospital programs to benefit patients and their families, employees and affiliates. Donor gifts make an impact in many ways! Learn more.
More than 150 gift funds benefit Good Samaritan Hospital (GSH). These funds help many long-standing programs that share our commitment to build a healthier community. Programs include:
Samaritan Homeless Clinic
The Clinic provides free medical, dental, substance abuse, and mental health treatment, along with social interventions and education. The Clinic serves more than 2000 homeless residents of the Miami Valley each year.
Poor health and homelessness are tightly linked. The Clinic has helped 85% of its patients conquer homelessness and return to mainstream society.
The Foundation allowed for $87,000 in renovations, which included relocating to a new 8,000 square foot facility in January 2011. In 2010 the Clinic received $120,000 in operational funding, which serves over 2,000 patients each year.

Teen Pregnancy Programs
Good Samaritan's Teen Pregnancy Programs serves pregnant teens, new mothers and their babies in the urban Dayton area. It provides free prenatal care, childbirth education, educational and support services, compliance incentives, and increased access to community resources to encourage a healthy pregnancy and delivery. Up to 18 months of parent education and support is also available to teens in the program.
Advanced technologies give patients hope at the Samaritan Cancer Center and Samaritan Breast Center.
Support programs like Camp Samaritan, where $175 sends a cancer survivor and a loved one to retreat, and Sharing Our Strength Breast Cancer Support Group, offer patients peace of mind.
In partnership with local and nationally recognized colleges and universities, the Beachler Nursing University provides educational resources for Good Sam employees pursuing nursing careers.

Our Spiritual Care staff works to promote the sense of health, wholeness, and well-being that all people desire.
