A Digital Patient Guide is available for those preparing for a surgery at Good Samaritan, and patients can familiarize themselves with the campus via a virtual tour. Other services offered on the website include online bill pay and accepted insurance plans.

It's all been designed to make our patients' lives smoother while also offering interesting, engaging information with straight-forward navigation."
The new website is also a source for the latest hospital news such as expected service expansions and facility upgrades, patient stories told by community members themselves, and available volunteer opportunities.
