Good Samaritan Visitor Guidelines

Dear Good Samaritan Patients and Visitors,

We continue to implement the most up-to-date guidance to keep our patients and teams safe. Therefore, Good Samaritan Medical Center is operating under the following visitation policy:


All visitors will be screened at the ED or Main Entrance upon arrival and given a wristband.

Visitor Passes:

Visitors must pick up their visitation pass from the East Main screening station at the Information Desk, even if the patient was admitted through the ED. 

The pass must be returned to this station every time the visitor leaves the building.  

Personal Protective Equipment: 

If visiting a patient who is on any isolation, the visitor should check in at the nurses' station to get PPE for that room.

Visitation Hours: 6:00 a.m. - 8:00 p.m.  Monday-Friday

                                 8:00 a.m. - 8:00 p.m.  Saturday & Sunday
