Good Samaritan is the only American Heart Association Mission: Lifeline hospital in the area offering a coordinated, proactive system of care that turns EMS, hospitals, and other healthcare providers into a team that uses proven guidelines and best practices to treat patients suffering from acute coronary syndrome, including both STEMI and non-ST-elevation acute coronary syndrome (NSTE-ACS) heart attacks.
 
Good Samaritan Medical Center offers primary angioplasty, a procedure which opens blocked coronary arteries that cause a heart attack. It also is a Massachusetts Department of Public Health designated stroke center, offering thrombolytic therapy – a drug that can open closed arteries to the brain during a stroke. Both primary angioplasty and stroke team care are available 24-hours for prompt treatment.
