The Samaritan Society recognizes and celebrates the generosity of our philanthropic partners who give annual gifts totaling $150 or more. The spirit of philanthropy has been at the heart of Riverside from its founding. Since 1959 when a handful of residents began collecting pledges to build this new hospital, gifts of all sizes have fueled the hospital's forward march toward innovative new therapies, excellence in patient care, and training the next generation of outstanding health care professionals.
