Good Samaritan Purchases First Street Property
During Thursday’s Board of Governors meeting, the Board approved
the purchase of a building located at 300 N. First Street in Vincennes.
The 10,000 square foot building, previously known as the First Street
Surgery Center, was purchased by the hospital for $875,000.
“As our organization continues to grow and offer additional services
to our patients, the purchase of this property was an opportunity we could
not pass up,” said Rob McLin, President and CEO. “We have
a multitude of different options we can use the space for and will be
considering all of them in the next three to six months.”
The immediate use of the building will be used as a COVID testing site
for Knox County. The testing site, collaborated by Good Samaritan, Vincennes
University and the Knox County Health Department, is expected to be open
sometime in September. More information will be available soon announcing
the opening date and hours of the new site.
