Your Journey

Why Good Samaritan Hospice?

Since 1992, Good Sam has been the only non-profit, community-based hospice serving southwest Virginia. No other local hospice offers you more comprehensive services than Good Sam. We provide the highest quality care with the most options, expertise, support and compassion. Every decision we make is guided by our values and mission, with the goal of providing the best care, not gaining the most profit.


The Sheila S. Strauss Hospice will be a hospice inpatient facility with a capacity of 16 beds and a consolidated hospice campus to house our home hospice teams, community bereavement center, and administration.

Good Sam Service Areas

As a community-based entity, we live and work in the communities we serve. We devote substantial time and resources to our community through end-of-life education, advance care planning, counseling programs, and outreach groups. We are only the provider servicing both the Roanoke and New River Valleys.
