The Good Samaritan Hospital is a 284-bed acute care facility.  It is located on a 14 acre campus in a largely residential area of Baltimore, MD. The hospital was established in 1968 through a trust fund which was donated by the late Thomas J. O'Neill. The Good Samaritan Hospital was first opened as a specialty hospital which served chronic care patients. The specialty areas included services such as rehabilitation, medicine, rheumatology, renal medicine, pulmonary medicine, and orthopaedics.

When the Good Samaritan Hospital opened in 1968, the medical staff was closed and only physicians with Johns Hopkins' appointments were allowed to practice here. Several years later, when the hospital encountered financial difficulty, community doctors began to establish their practices here as well.

Today, the Good Samaritan Hospital has grown extensively and has become an integral part of the Medstar Health Care System which includes five area hospitals as well as a large network of outpatient facilities dedicated to providing total care to the patients it serves. In addition to the hospital, two professional buildings have been established on the hospital grounds. A nursing home and subsidized housing for the elderly have also been added to the Good Samaritan property.

Johns Hopkins University at Good Samaritan Hospital

While the Johns Hopkins University physicians have been practicing at the Good Samaritan Hospital since its opening in 1968, the Division of Arthritis Surgery was formally established at the Good Samaritan Hospital in 1992.  This Division is part of the Department of Orthopaedic Surgery of the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine.  As such it is rooted in the legacy of Johns Hopkins and the School of Medicine it represents. The Division of Orthopaedics private practice offices are located in the Professional Building which is adjacent to the hospital. Consultation appointments for our patients are held in these offices, with each of the attending physicians seeing patients a minimum of one day per week. The hospital's orthopaedic unit is a 28 bed acute care setting which provides the skilled professional care needed for our patients while recovering from the various surgeries performed by our staff of physicians.
