Good Samaritan was presented with an award by Indiana Governor Eric J.
Holcomb with the Governor’s Century Business Award on Thursday,
March 21. The ceremony at the Indiana Statehouse recognized 65 Indiana
companies for their longevity and service to its employees, community
and the state. Good Samaritan was founded 111 years ago as the state’s
first county-owned hospital. This is the first year, in the award’s
28-year history, that non-profit organizations like Good Samaritan were
eligible to be recognized.
The Governor’s Century and Half Century Business Awards honor Hoosier
businesses that have remained in operation for a minimum of 100 or 50
consecutive years and have demonstrated a commitment to community service.
“Good Samaritan has been a staple in our community for 111 years,”
said Rob McLin, President and CEO. “Our organization’s longevity
is an example of the dedication we have to providing the best care to
everyone that walks in our doors. From 1908 when Good Samaritan first
opened to now, and into the future, we strive to remain a leader in health
care for the communities we serve.”
Good Samaritan’s Chief Nursing Officer, Karen Haak, accepted the
award on the hospital’s behalf during the ceremony.
