Transfusion Free Medicine
The Transfusion-Free Medicine and Surgery Center at Good Samaritan Hospital is a state-of-the-art approach to the medical and surgical care of patients without the use of blood transfusion. The center relies upon the expertise of physician specialists who use the most advanced pharmaceuticals, medical equipment/technology and medical/surgical techniques to accomplish this end. When surgery is indicated, careful planning is imperative, and a variety of approaches are mandated to increase the margin of safety.
