Good Samaritan Hospital provides high-quality healthcare, improves human life, and proudly serves San Jose as a vital community health partner. We continuously evaluate how Good Samaritan Hospital can best meet our patients’ evolving healthcare needs. After careful consideration, we are making several changes that align with those needs.

Today, we are announcing that Good Samaritan Hospital will:

  • Close its pediatric intensive care unit (PICU), which for two years has cared for only one patient per day on average.
  • Close its inpatient behavioral health program. It has been difficult to secure and sustain physician and specialty clinicians (LCSWs, therapists etc.) to maintain the program.
  • These changes will be implemented on August 20, 2023.

We have coordinated a smooth transition for existing patients with several Bay Area hospital partners who have the appropriate and comprehensive range of services to care for them. We are working closely with our medical staff to maintain continuity of care for our patients. We will continue to provide emergency care services, including Behavior Health and Pediatrics, to all patients.

These changes will affect a small number of our colleagues. We are working with each impacted individual to support next steps for their careers based on their skills, training, and experience.

*If you are having a medical emergency, please proceed to our Emergency Department for care.
