Inside and out, our dedication to quality service reaches far and wide.
Whether it's inside the walls of our facility or outside at the local gym, we go above and beyond to make sure our community is well taken care of. At Good Samaritan Hospital, our people are involved in every sense of the word. From the United Way to the village of Downers Grove, we extend our hands and our hearts to help those in need.

A true blend of tradition and progress-Downers Grove is a hometown unlike any other.
Imagine a charming, vibrant downtown-complete with a historic movie theater-excellent schools, an award-winning park district, and some of the most affordable homes in Chicagoland. That's exactly what you'll discover in Downers Grove.
The downtown area recently received a $14 million face-lift to ensure the historic charm and quaint small shops will be enjoyed for generations to come. Sidewalks were replaced, new retro streetlights installed, brick paver crosswalks added, and a decorative fountain was installed at the train station. The work was so striking that the city recently earned a national award for historic preservation. Homes range from 1900s Victorians to brand-new Georgians and the city is conveniently linked to Chicago by Metra commuter rail.
