WMCHealth announces that elective outpatient ambulatory surgeries, office visits and medical tests have resumed at Good Samaritan Hospital, under an Executive Order from Governor Andrew Cuomo.  

Governor Cuomo’s Executive Order allows for resumption of elective outpatient ambulatory surgical services -- those for which the patient enters and leaves a surgical facility on the same day, without an overnight stay -- based on the status of coronavirus impact, including a drop in COVID-19 cases in specific counties.

At Bon Secours Charity Health System, our patients’ health and safety are our top priority. As we expand our surgical services from the COVID-19 era, we are actively working to provide quality care to serve our patients, families, and staff. 

Please read Our Patient Information for more detail on scheduling elective outpatient ambulatory procedures and tests, visitation and what to expect in preparing for a surgical procedure.

**A safe and effective care environment is our highest priority, and Good Samaritan Hospital's Joint Replacement Center has undertaken the necessary steps to protect our patients, visitors and workforce as the COVID-19 situation evolves.  This includes canceling the onsite Joint Replacement Program Classes for the time being. Please review the below educational presentation and exercises at your leisure**

Good Samaritan Hospital, a member of the Westchester Medical Center Health Network (WMCHealth), has completed a comprehensive upgrade to its Orthopedic Surgery Center.  The unit offers a new level of patient experience to the region and fosters a specialized, patient-first approach to orthopedic care.


The 10,000-square-foot unit offers 14 private en suite patient recovery rooms, each equipped with state-of-the-art digital monitoring consoles that nurses can use to input all patient documentation. The modern space also includes a multi-purpose room used for patient education, mindfulness exercises and community dining; a PT/OT gym complete with large scale simulations/props to help patients practice navigating activities of daily living; a walking track and a family waiting area with a coffee bar.

The unit also has centralized meeting spaces for multidisciplinary collaboration. The project created a separate, private entrance to the Orthopedic Surgery Center where patients are greeted by a program concierge at an expanded reception area. The concierge guides patients through the entire process, delivering a premium patient experience.
