The Foundation’s gift will support their plans to build the Good Samaritan Center for Caring. The Center envisioned will provide hospice inpatient care, serve as a permanent home for our home hospice teams, include a community bereavement center, and accommodate administrative offices.

Good Samaritan is the only community-based, not-for-profit hospice and palliative care provider serving southwest Virginia. Good Samaritan offers holistic hospice and palliative care, as well as grief support to patients, families, and community members, regardless of ability to pay. To learn more, visit www.
