The Good Samaritan Hospital Foundation inspires philanthropy that enhances the health and well-being of Miami Valley Hospital patients and those who care for them. Support comes from foundations, businesses, and individuals who value the positive impact our hospital has on the health of the Dayton community. Good Samaritan Hospital Foundation was founded in 1973 when the Hospital leaders realized they needed a dedicated—and separate—nonprofit entity to manage charitable contributions. Today, the Foundation provides approximately $500,000 each year to programs, improving the health of our community. By Good Samaritans coming together with patients and families, amazing things have happened.
