University Hospitals Samaritan Medical Center is a 52 staffed bed acute care facility located between two of Ohio’s largest cities, Cleveland and Columbus. It was given to the City of Ashland in 1912 by local philanthropists J.L. Clark and his wife, Mary. Mr. and Mrs. Clark decided to build Samaritan Hospital after hearing a Sunday School lesson about the Good Samaritan, noting Ashland needed “a hospital where no sick person would ever be refused care.”
As a not-for-profit organization, UH Samaritan's income is reinvested in the healthcare system, directly impacting the health of the community. The dollars earned allow UH Samaritan to provide state-of-the-art facilities with equally advanced technology and equipment.
