As 2017 draws to a close, we appreciate the opportunity to reflect on a
number of the important accomplishments at Good Samaritan Hospital during
the past year. While Downtown Los Angeles continues to experience rapid
growth in both the business and residential communities, we too are growing
in an effort to create comprehensive and exceptional health care for those
In the past year we have opened our state-of-the-art Medical Pavilion and
populated it with a diverse group of first-rate physicians and medical
practices. In the Pavilion, we will soon open both a new Outpatient Surgery
Center and a new Radiation Oncology Center to facilitate access for our
patients. Recently we developed our Comprehensive Stroke Center in association
with the Neuroscience Center at the University of Southern California/Keck
School of Medicine with procedures which revolutionize outcomes. Our acclaimed
Cardiology Program continues to pioneer new techniques and technologies
while patient surveys consistently rate our Perinatal Unit among the best
for mother-and-baby safety and personalized care.
We are indebted to all the dedicated physicians, nurses, staff and administrators
who make this and other progress possible. We are particularly grateful
to you, our friends, supporters and generous donors who have enabled us
to continue to expand and innovate to meet the needs of our expanding
community and continue to provide the highest levels of service to our patients.
As we approach the holiday season, we invite you to make a special year-end
gift to Good Samaritan Hospital. Your gift, great or small, will help
us remain a premier health care leader in Southern California.
Thank you for your support and please accept our very best wishes to you
and your family for a wonderful holiday season and Happy New Year.
With sincere gratitude,
Andrew B. Leeka
