Good Samaritan Foundation Announces Name of Health Education Center

Good Samaritan Foundation began their Capital Campaign to build the hospital’s Health Education Center at the beginning of 2018. This past Saturday, the Foundation held its annual gala where it was announced that, because of a significant donation from the family of the late Dr. Charles C. Hedde, the future Health Education Center will be known as the “Charles C. Hedde M.D. Health Education Center.”

“The hospital, the residency program and the community were all things that were important to [my father],” said Charles Hedde, Jr. “I know this because I could see it in his eyes and hear it in his voice every time the topics would come up. I’m honored and extremely proud to share that Dad will forever be a part of all things he was so passionate about, as it is only fitting to honor him with the naming of the Charles C. Hedde, M.D. Education Center.”

The $2.5 million dollar education center will be used for staff and clinical training, serve as an education center for the residency program, and will be available for community use. “The legacy of Dr. Charles Hedde will live on with the naming of Good Samaritan’s Health Education Center after him, by his family,” added Gary Hackney, Director of Foundation.

Charles Hedde, Jr. made the announcement that himself and his family are excited to help fund the Good Samaritan Foundation’s capital campaign to build a Health Education Center with their donation that will end up being between $250,000 to $500,000.
