History of UH Samaritan Medical Center
Samaritan Hospital was given to the city of Ashland in 1912 by local philanthropists Jesse Lewis Clark and his wife Mary.
Their decision to build the hospital was inspired by a Sunday school lesson about the Good Samaritan. The couple believed Ashland needed “a hospital where no sick person would ever be refused care.”
