Palm Beach, FL, November 10, 2015 – With an emphasis on bringing cutting-edge medical treatments to Palm Beach and surrounding areas, Good Samaritan Medical Center is also looking to strengthen its voice in the community through a new partnership with the Palm Beach Civic Association.
“As an award-winning 333-bed acute care hospital, we’re making great strides in a lot of fields: oncology, , emergency services, women's health, as well as cardiac and vascular care,” explained Good Samaritan CEO Mark Nosacka. “No matter how our capabilities expand in the coming years, we want to make sure that we retain our community focus, which is why we place so much value on our expanded relationship with PBCA.”
In becoming a Corporate Sponsor of PBCA, Good Samaritan builds a stronger community connection with Palm Beach on matters involving health care and decisions that affect future expansion plans for Good Sam, which opened in 1919 in a three-room cottage.
“Good Samaritan Medical Center is essential to maintaining the excellent quality of life that we enjoy in the Town of Palm Beach,” observed Bob Wright, chairman and CEO of PBCA. “We look forward to partnering with Good Samaritan on critical issues involving health care and promoting greater citizen involvement in the community.”
As one of the area’s leading cancer centers, the hospital’s Cancer Institute provides comprehensive and highly specialized cancer services. Good Samaritan Medical Center’s Comprehensive Breast Center has also earned national accreditation by the National Accreditation Program of Breast Centers (NAPBC).
