West Islip, NY - Good Samaritan Hospital Medical Center was recently the recipient of a $250,000 grant secured with the assistance of New York State Senator Owen Johnson. The Senator has been a long-time supporter of Good Samaritan Hospital services and programs. The grant funding went towards a Central Monitoring System for the hospital’s Pediatric Unit.
“Having a state-of-the-art monitoring system for children in Good Samaritan’s Pediatric Unit offers a significant advantage in caring for patients,” said Good Samaritan Hospital’s Chair of Pediatric Services Catherine Caronia, MD.
New York State Senator Phil Boyle, members of the Hospital Foundation Board and physicians shared in the celebration on the Good Samaritan pediatric roof top garden, a beautiful and soothing outdoor space, available for patients and their families to help speed the recovery and minimize the stress associated with a hospital stay.
Good Samaritan’s commitment to children’s health begins at birth and continues throughout childhood. By offering a seamless network of pediatric subspecialties, Good Samaritan provides families with the advanced medical care they require.
