Led by Vice President Robert Timperio, EW Howell’s Healthcare Division has a relationship with Good Samaritan Hospital that spans more than 35 years, beginning with the construction of its 106,000 square-foot expansion of the patient care pavilion in 1982. Other projects EW Howell has completed for Good Samaritan Hospital include a renovation to the lobby, a new emergency wing and special care wing, the 10,000 square-foot interior renovation of the linear accelerator and CT scan room in 2014, a 7,000 square-foot interior renovation of the pulmonary, respiratory and biomedical facility in 2011, and a 10,500 square-foot interior renovation of the Women’s Health building across the street from the main hospital.
