Canopy Health Adds Good Samaritan Hospital to Impressive List of Growing Alliance

Good Samaritan Hospital in San Jose is the latest to join the expanding Canopy Health alliance.

To better serve our members’ needs, Canopy Health has added Good Samaritan Hospital in San Jose to our alliance of hospitals and provider groups. Now your employees have even more healthcare choices near their offices and homes in Santa Clara County and the Silicon Valley.

Canopy Health Expands in 2018

Canopy Health expanded in early 2018, broadening our reach in Santa Clara and San Mateo Counties. In Santa Clara County, we added Good Samaritan Hospital, Regional Medical Center of San Jose, and SCCIPA to our impressive alliance of physicians, hospitals, and care centers. Now, our members can choose from roughly 5,000 physicians, 18 hospitals, and numerous outpatient and urgent care facilities located throughout eight Bay Area counties.

Good Samaritan Hospital: Compassionate Care and Advanced Medical Solutions

Good Samaritan Hospital has served San Jose and Santa Clara County’s healthcare needs since 1965. Its high-quality healthcare programs include:

  • American College of Radiology-accredited mammography, stereotactic breast biopsy, breast MRI, and breast ultrasound programs
  • ASMBS-accredited bariatric surgery program and Center of Excellence
  • CCS Certified Level III Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) with a pediatric surgery specialization
  • CARF-accredited inpatient rehabilitation and stroke care programs
  • County-designated STEMI heart attack receiving center
  • Joint Commission-accredited Comprehensive Stroke Center
  • Joint Commission-certified sepsis program
  • Joint Commission Seal of Approval for Hip and Knee Replacement
  • NAPBC-accredited breast cancer staging and radiation oncology programs

The hospital has also adopted advanced healthcare technologies that provide minimally-invasive treatment options to patients — improving outcomes and reducing recovery times. Its doctors have access to two daVinci Xi robotic surgery systems, a Cyberknife robotic radiosurgery system, and the South Bay’s first intensity modulated radiation therapy system.

It also is in the midst of an Emergency Room Department renovation that will double Good Samaritan Hospital’s ER square footage and offer advanced diagnostic and specialized rooms for trauma, cardiac, and pediatric patients.

Alongside cutting-edge healthcare, Good Samaritan Hospital provides compassionate, high-quality care. The hospital is a Joint Commission Top Performer on Key Quality Measures. Just as importantly, it believes all patients are unique and deserving of compassion, kindness, and respect. 

Comprehensive Cancer Center

Good Samaritan Hospital’s Comprehensive Cancer Center is nationally recognized for its commitment to quality and patient-focused care. For five consecutive years, the American College of Surgeon’s Commission on Cancer awarded Good Samaritan Hospital its Outstanding Achievement Award. Only two other hospitals in the United States have achieved this level of recognition.

Cancer patients have access to cutting-edge surgical, medical, and radiological treatment options at Good Samaritan Hospital and its Outpatient Infusion Center. Its innovative lung cancer screening program helps at-risk patients identify cancers early on, improving their likelihood of survival. And the hospital offers programs that support cancer patients and their families throughout their journey.

Stroke and Rehabilitation Programs

Good Samaritan Hospital was the first Bay Area medical center to achieve Joint Commission certification as a Comprehensive Stroke Center. Patients receive care from a multidisciplinary team of board-certified physicians, accredited nurses, and rehabilitation therapists. It also was the first Santa Clara County community-based hospital to offer IV thrombolytic therapy, which can restore circulation to the brain and help prevent damage to important brain tissues.

Once a stroke patient has stabilized, he or she might receive care from Good Samaritan Hospital’s Inpatient Rehabilitation Program. This CARF-accredited program is in the top 5% of inpatient rehabilitation programs in the United States and boasts some of the best rates of functional improvement and patient discharge to home (rather than to a long-term care center) in the Bay Area.

Birth Center

Good Samaritan’s Birthing Center was included in Bay Area Parent Magazine’s Hall of Fame as the “Best Place to Have a Baby” and a “Family Favorite.” The Birthing Center’s amenities include private, updated labor and delivery suites, access to certified nurse midwives, and 24/7 anesthesia and pain management services from board-certified specialists. When a newborn needs care in the hospitals’ Level III NICU, Good Samaritan offers family-focused services such as sibling child-care during visits, transportation assistance, and help finding local, overnight accommodations.
