In other hospital news, GSH is increasing the limits of their financial assistance policy…..
Good Samaritan Hospital CEO Rob McLin signed a one year extension to remain the boss of Knox County’s premiere hospital. McLin has been the CEO of GSH since April of 2010. Under his leadership, the hospital has seen the addition of the state-of-the-art Gibault Memorial Tower as well as the renovations for the Beacon Project. Another highlight under the direction of McLin is the installation of the electronic medical records system known as “Epic.”
McLin is proud of the progress he and his nineteen hundred employees have made, but there is still some monetary challenges ahead.
McLin said he is really pleased with the GSH staff and the one thing they don’t talk enough about is the world class people working at the hospital to care for others. As McLin stated, “We don’t treat people like a number, we treat them like family.”

Good Samaritan Hospital in Vincennes is increasing the limits of their financial assistance policy to better support the health of the community. The hospital is working with residents who are uninsured to provide care.
GSH Chief Financial Officer, Thom Cook, says part of the hospital’s role is to help the public afford health coverage.
The policy, also known as the charity care policy, sets the threshold of what patients pay based on their income levels. The revised guidelines fall under behavioral health, physicians, and hospital bills.
