With Good Sam closing, focus groups looking for feedback

Residents who live in the neighborhoods surrounding Good Samaritan Hospital are invited to give feedback at a series of upcoming focus groups.

Five Rivers Health Centers, a nonprofit network of community health centers, will remain at its headquarters in northwest Dayton after Good Samaritan closes later this year. Five Rivers leadership now wants input on what the community’s health care needs are and what gaps could need filled after the hospital closes.
