Our Hallmark Values and related Core Principles:
Christ-centered (compassion) is to be captured by the love of Jesus, to follow in His footsteps, to take His teaching seriously, to share His word and to carry on his work. One primary way we do this in Good Samaritan Society communities is through compassion, going above and beyond to meet one another’s deepest human needs.
Resident-centered (hospitality) is to listen to those who live in Good Samaritan communities, to understand their needs and to work with them in providing the fullest possible life. To provide that quality of life, we emphasize hospitality, which challenges every Good Samaritan Society center and campus to become a Christian community where people love and care for one another.
Staff-centered (vocation) is to recognize staff as the Good Samaritan Society’s greatest treasure and to respect and support them in every way possible. The idea of vocation lifts up the importance for staff to have the opportunity to serve and to learn and grow in their capacity to serve.
Community-centered (service) is to be sensitive to the needs of the community and to partner with them in providing an array of services to meet those needs. The idea of service includes both the many benefits our care centers offer to people in the community, and the many ways volunteers enrich the lives of those in our care communities.
