Samaritan is governed by a board, which includes community members, physicians and hospital leaders. 

As one of the region’s major employers, Samaritan actively participates in efforts to strengthen and grow the local economy, as well as to improve quality of life through high-achieving schools, a strong network of social services, and a commitment to preserving and protecting the environment.

Together with our 6,000 plus employees, Samaritan is committed to “building healthier communities together.”
