Good Samaritan Foundation-Dayton is honored to support the new Good Samaritan Chapel project, an upcoming addition to the North Campus that promises to be a sanctuary of solace and unity. This interfaith chapel is a tribute to the St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Chapel at the former Good Samaritan Hospital that will feature cherished original artifacts, creating a harmonious blend of history and contemporary design.
“What began in 1932 with the Sisters of Charity remains strong today with our Foundation’s commitment to our community,” says Jenny Lewis, president and CEO of Good Samaritan Foundation-Dayton and system vice president of philanthropy at Premier Health. “Constructing a chapel at the North Campus reaffirms our promise to continue the legacy of Good Samaritan and provide a space of hope and healing for our patients, staff, and community.”
The timeless elegance of the original chapel’s pews, intricate woodwork, breathtaking doors, chandeliers, and resplendent stained-glass windows will grace this new space, creating a tangible link to the past while welcoming the present.
The creation of the 1,500-square-foot chapel will be made possible by the incredible generosity of Good Samaritan Foundation-Dayton donors. Whether seeking comfort, reflection, or a quiet moment of peace, the chapel will provide a sacred space where all are welcome, regardless of their faith or background.
As the North Campus welcomes this remarkable addition, the Good Samaritan Chapel will embody the enduring spirit of the Good Samaritan with compassion, community, and healing for generations to come.
