Renovations, Virtual Visits, More at Area Hospitals

Check out what's new at award-winning hospital Good Samaritan; and Kids Express, the only care in Ohio that is kid-focused.

New Baby Cameras & Renovations at Good Samaritan

Up until recently, because of COVID-19, only moms and dads were allowed to see their newborns staying in the NICU unit. But thanks to the Cincinnati charity MacKenzie’s Marvelous Adventures (; dedicated to supporting local NICUs), funds for baby cameras were raised so extended families and friends could see and support their tiny babies directly on their cell phones.

Every NICU bed at Good Samaritan now has a tiny camera attached so families can see their little ones through their NICU journies. Good Samaritan is also in the final phase of ongoing renovations for moms and babies. The oldest and largest private, teaching and specialty health care facility in Cincinnati now has state-of-the-art maternity spaces. The first two phases of the project are complete and include a full update of the Mother and Baby Unit. Additionally, all postpartum rooms are now private and fully renovated and an Advanced Obstetrical Care Unit for high risk patients is now complete and also private.
