The hospital is part of an 84-acre campus north of town that houses a number of medical office buildings as well as the Mario Pastega House, which serves as a comfortable and low-cost “home away from home” for out-of-area patients and their families traveling to Corvallis for medical care. Good Sam is part of Samaritan Health Services, a healthcare system encompassing five hospitals, a senior care facility and 72 physicians’ clinics in the three-county area.
