KEARNEY, Neb. -- Good Samaritan hospital in Kearney was celebrating 90 years of
service Sunday.

Good Samaritan serves patients across three states. That area stretches across Central Nebraska from Northern Kansas to South
Dakota.

President of Good Samaritan hospital Michael Schnieders said 50 percent of their business comes from outside Buffalo County.

Despite the hospital's role in the community, Schneider said he doesn't believe hospitals will be the focal point of health care in the future.

He said, "I think lot of us have seen in the last 20 years people that used to be in the hospital for maybe 5 or 6 days they're now in the hospital as an outpatient. So we think that's gonna continue to evolve and we think healthcare's gonna be more proactive rather than reactive. We call it the wellness model, not the sick care model."

More than 1,500 people came to celebrate Good Samaritan's 90th birthday.
