COVID-19 Updates

We are prepared. We are responding. We are here for you.


On behalf of Samaritan, please be assured that there is nothing more important than the safety of our patients, families, staff, volunteers, and our community. We have a dedicated Coronavirus Task Force that is examining each and every layer of this situation. We coordinate our work and decision-making processes with multiple entities, including the New Jersey Department of Health, the World Health Organization, and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
