Good Samaritan Hospital

Good Samaritan started in 1852 as St. John’s Hospital for Invalids when Archbishop John Purcell donated a small hospital downtown to the Sisters of Charity to use to care for the poor. Impressed by the care provided by the Sisters of Charity, two local bankers donated a larger hospital, which was once used to treat wounded soldiers during the Civil War and it was changed to the Hospital of the Good Samaritan. In 1915 the hospital moved to its current location in Clifton and since that time it has grown to be one of the largest in the area.

The hospital provides a variety of services and is a teaching hospital and is home to the Good Samaritan College of Nursing. Today the hospital is part of the TriHealth network and is ranked nationally as one of the best hospitals in several different categories. The Good Samaritan Hospital Foundation a charitable foundation used to support the hospital and its services.
