Good Samaritan Hospital (closed in 2018) Emergency Department Closure and Name Changes

Premier Pulse     May 2018

Premier Health announced this month that the Emergency Department at Good Samaritan Hospital's Philadelphia Drive campus will close at 11:59 pm on July 19. We previously announced that the closure of the Good Samaritan Hospital campus on Philadelphia Drive would occur no later than August 29. Rapid progress on a plan to migrate the hospital’s services and employee jobs resulted in an adjustment of the timeline.

Additionally, effective Monday, July 23, due to regulatory requirements, the names of all Good Samaritan Hospital locations will change to reflect their affiliation with Miami Valley Hospital. Good Samaritan Hospital's main campus on Philadelphia Drive, for example, will be renamed Miami Valley Hospital Philadelphia Drive until that location closes. Good Samaritan North Health Center (Miami Valley Hospital North as of July 23, 2018) will be named Miami Valley Hospital North.

Inpatient operations at Good Sam’s main campus will begin winding down once the emergency department closes. A date when inpatient care will cease at the hospital has not been set, as inpatient care will be completed as soon as possible in accordance with the best interests of our patients.

Our Good Samaritan Hospital transition page is being updated frequently as services migrate elsewhere from the hospital's Philadelphia Drive campus. Thank you for your continued patience and dedication as we work to complete this transition.

We understand that this adjusted timeline has several implications. In some cases, it might increase the amount of time that a Good Samaritan Hospital employee has a temporary assignment before beginning a permanent job elsewhere. Please know that we are carefully planning for these isolated cases.
