MedStar Good Samaritan Nursing Center
We are a highly qualified team of medical professionals who provide quality health care and a full spectrum of nursing and rehabilitative services for the residents of our community. We are dedicated to serving our community with excellence, compassion, respect and all the resources—human, scientific, and spiritual—at our disposal.
We are located at 1601 East Belvedere Avenue, Baltimore, Maryland 21239. To arrange a tour or to discuss nursing home needs, call the MedStar Good Samaritan Nursing Center at 443-451-5700.
Each patient at MedStar Good Samaritan Nursing Center is unique, with special needs and concerns. That is why our team of physicians, nurses, and therapists works with you to develop a plan of care to meet your particular needs. During your stay, a physician of your choice can oversee your care, or you may see our medical director who is board-certified in Internal Medicine and Gerontology. A registered dietician will plan menus that will suit your individualized needs and tastes. The care you need is always close at hand because licensed nurses are on staff 24 hours a day, and physicians are on call around the clock.
Should the need for hospitalization arise, we are conveniently located on the campus of MedStar Good Samaritan Hospital. And because MedStar Good Samaritan is part of the MedStar Health system, you have access to an entire network of diagnostic and therapeutic services in the Baltimore area.
The MedStar Good Samaritan Nursing Center focuses on individualized physical, occupational, and speech therapy programs. Therapy sessions are held within our facility and are provided by our own employees, rather than outside contracted therapists. Our highly-trained therapists specialize in stroke and orthopedic rehabilitation, as well as post-surgical and restorative therapy.
Our skilled nursing staff specializes in aiding residents requiring feeding tubes, intravenous therapy, wound care, and other special services. Licensed nurses are available 24 hours a day.
Hospice Care is available for residents with terminal illnesses, having a less than six-month prognosis.
Our social services department is available should you or your family want to discuss any personal, social, or financial issues associated with your stay. Our social services staff works closely with each family and resident to prepare them for a smooth transition back into the community.
Our staff is committed to complete service for our residents and will assist with dressing, bathing, grooming, and eating. We believe that maintaining personal hygiene and regular care promotes improved self-esteem and dignity, and we encourage our residents to keep a regular, active, independent lifestyle.
The MedStar Good Samaritan Nursing Center features activities and entertainment for residents of all ages.
Activities are designed to improve and enhance each resident's quality of life while promoting self-esteem and morale. We hope to encourage each resident to reach his/her highest practicable level of physical, mental, and psychosocial functioning.
For less capable residents, we also provide a sensory stimulation program designed to exercise the resident's senses. These activities are a critical adjunct to nursing, medical, and rehabilitative services in the total care of the resident.
Activity calendars are posted throughout the center, so residents can choose what they enjoy, including
- art therapy and crafts
- basketball and volleyball
- bingo, puzzles, and trivia
- educational discussions
- exercise classes
- holiday celebrations
- movie matinees
- music hour and sing-a-longs
- pet visits
- religious services
- Wii games
