Good Samaritan Update

In 2016, a generous gift from the Hauppauge-based DiLorenzo Family and the Charlotte-based Haven Eileen Kiley Foundation set the wheels in motion for beautiful music to be made at Good Samaritan Hospital Medical Center. The Musician-in-Residence program at Good Sam features weekly visits and music sessions through the Medical Center’s Child Life Program from Lauren Hirsch, a music therapist who is currently pursuing her Master’s degree in special education. Through the Musician-in-Residence program, Lauren has been able to combine her love of children with her passion for music.

Once a week, Lauren visits the Pediatric Unit at Good Sam and turns the Unit’s unique playroom into a space for patients to experience the healing power of music. Children and their families are encouraged to join in group song and playful exploration of various musical instruments. When the weather permits, the concerts and patient jam sessions are taken outside to the Unit’s rooftop garden and deck.
