“After talking with other local physicians and visiting Good Samaritan,
I realized this is top-notch facility. It provides quality care to patients
and has almost everything a large hospital would have. As far as technology
goes, for a community this size, Good Samaritan is second to none.”
Scott Keyes, MD – Board Certified Family Medicine Physician
Good Samaritan Physician Network
The Good Samaritan Physician Network offers patients a variety of both
primary and specialty care physician services. Whether the need is acute
or chronic, a routine check-up or follow up from surgery; one thing is
for sure – Good Samaritan’s growth into a regional healthcare
system ensures care is right around the corner to meet patient needs.
Good Samaritan offers 18 outpatient clinics in five neighboring communities
within a 20 mile radius. While the main hospital campus continues to grow
to meet demand, so does the number of resources accessible to residents
in surrounding communities. No need to make a trip to the hospital; your
local hometown physician can provide Good Samaritan services without the
drive to Vincennes.
“I decided to practice with Good Samaritan because “it is an excellent
facility with high standards of compassionate care that is patient-centered.
Amy Archer, DO – Board Certified Family Medicine Physician
