Good Samaritan Cancer Center Receives Spirit of Excellence Award


The Cancer Center at Good Samaritan Hospital, Kearney, NE, was honored by Modern Healthcare magazine with one of five annual Spirit of Excellence awards. The award honors organizations and individuals that go beyond what’s expected in serving their patients and communities. The Cancer Center received the award for its efforts to help local high school students launch and sustain the Kearney Tackles Cancer campaign, which raised more than $100,000 to help cancer patients who are struggling financially. Each Spirit of Excellence Award recipient receives a $5,000 cash prize, and Good Samaritan Cancer Center’s award will go directly to the Tackle Cancer fund.
