Serving the region since 1924, our destination medical center provides specialty care from cardiology to orthopedics, maternity, behavioral health and more.
Keeping Care Close
For Nebraska residents living outside of metropolitan areas, access to health care can come with significant travel time. CHI Health Good Samaritan in Kearney, Nebraska, ensures the highest standard of medical services are within reach.
Over the years, Good Samaritan has transformed from a community hospital into a thriving regional referral center. Today, our 236-bed facility encompasses nearly 800,000 square feet on two campuses. Its service area includes 340,000 people in more than 41,000 square miles (the size of the state of Indiana). Good Samaritan’s location in the region is the key; more than 50% of our patients come from outside of Buffalo County where Good Samaritan sits.
Large Network Serves the Region
Collaborating with partner facilities ensures residents receive care when and where it’s most convenient. Our physicians regularly conduct outreach clinics in locations across central Nebraska and northern Kansas, with 16 hospitals in the region comprising Good Samaritan’s critical access hospital network. One of the largest networks in the state, these facilities come together in the best interests of patients who call rural communities home.
