October 14th, 2021 Islip Town Supervisor Angie Carpenter joined officials from Good Samaritan Hospital on the occasion of the hospital earning the Magnet Designation for Nursing Excellence. The Magnet Recognition Program highlights health care organizations that demonstrate excellence in nursing philosophy and practice, adhere to national standards for improving patient care, have an active research program, and display leadership and sensitivity to cultural and ethnic diversity. To achieve Magnet status, health care facilities undergo an intensive interview and reviewal process; Good Samaritan is the first hospital on the South Shore of Long Island to achieve the honor.

“It’s been a difficult two years for our healthcare workers who throughout the pandemic, remained steadfast on the front lines, and at the same time, managed to achieve this highest accolade,” said Supervisor Angie Carpenter. “It’s a true testament to their commitment to healthcare at the utmost level,” she added.

Supervisor Carpenter presented Good Samaritan Hospital with a Citation of Recognition on behalf of the Islip Town Board, and an official Town of Islip seal pin. Catholic Health’s Senior Vice President of Patient Care, and Good Samaritan’s Chief Nursing Officer Gara Edelstein, RN, MSN alongside Good Samaritan Hospital President Ruth E. Hennessey presented the Supervisor with a bouquet of flowers and an official Magnet Recognition pin.
