Good Samaritan Society Celebrates 60 Years In Le Mars


(Le Mars) — The Good Samaritan Society of Le Mars is celebrating its 60th anniversary as a nursing care facility in Le Mars. Recently, the long-term care facility completed an expansion project that added even more patient rooms. The Good Samaritan Society hosted the weekly Chamber of Commerce Coffee, and many attendees of the Chamber Coffee took a tour through the newly expanded facilities. Karen Mousel serves as the administrator for Good Samaritan Society in Le Mars. She talks about the expansion that was only recently completed.

Mousel says part of the renovation was to install private bathrooms for each of the patients.

The care facility employs about 100 staff people, many of who have longevity with Good Samaritan Society.

The Good Samaritan Society administrator says the facility is always re-defining itself by expanding into specific areas of senior health care, including a focus on Alzheimer’s and other dementia diseases.

The Le Mars Good Samaritan Society has more than 70 residents.
