Our Name

For more than 25 years, we’ve been educating the next generation of physicians in the latest, most innovative medicine, all while providing the most advanced capabilities along with the most compassionate care. Now, our name reflects that commitment to Long Islanders today and for generations to come.

Adding “University” builds on the hospital’s longstanding reputation for excellence in the community, leading edge technology, expanding services, and increasing focus on academic excellence and clinical research.

Good Samaritan University Hospital will redefine what a University Hospital means by blending medicine, science, innovation, compassion and teaching.

Disclaimer: Good Samaritan University Hospital is not authorized to operate, maintain or manage a charter school, a nursery school, a kindergarten, an elementary school, a secondary school, a licensed private career school or Certified English as a Second Language School unless authorized under Article 101 of the Education Law, a college, a university, or to advertise or offer credit bearing courses or degrees in New York State.

Future of Health Care

Good Samaritan University Hospital recently broke ground on its Patient Care Pavilion. This 300,000 square foot addition will be located on the northeast portion of the campus and feature a 75-bay Emergency Department, 16 high-tech replacement operating rooms and three floors of private patient rooms. 

These expansion plans allow us to continue to provide the highest level of health care while accommodating the growing health care needs of our surrounding Long Island community.
