Good Sam ER Fete Features Patriots Light

BROCKTON--Good Samaritan Medical Center will begin a new era of emergency care October 19 with the opening of its new, $30 million state-of-the art emergency room.
“The emergency department is the front door to the hospital, and our front door needed to be bigger and more welcoming,” said Richard Herman, chairman of emergency medicine.
“It wasn’t designed for our current high volume. The focus was not on patient privacy and comfort. Now we will be able to provide the best that emergency medicine has to offer, in a modern facility that is safe, comfortable, and convenient,” Herman added.
Good Samaritan is inviting the public to celebrate this momentous occasion.
There will be a community open house, with special guest, three-time Pro Bowler Matt Light of the New England Patriots Saturday, October 15 from Noon to 3 p.m. at the new emergency room on Pearl St.
All are welcome to come and view the brand new 32,000-square-foot space and its amenities.
The open house will include free educational sessions on infant car seat safety, breast cancer awareness, surgery, triage and medication safety.
Tours of the “Mega Heart,” an inflatable educational tool on cardiac care that visitors can walk through, will also be offered.
Staff will also give Halloween safety tips for children and tours of an American Medical Response ambulance will also be available.
