Good Samaritan Hospital operated under the sponsorship of St. Peter's Episcopal Church. For many years it included a nursing school, which still has an active alumnae association. The facility closed when Charlotte hospitals desegregated about 1960. Today a state historical marker on the grounds of Panthers Stadium marks the building’s site and Good Sam’s chapel is preserved as a permanent exhibit at Levine Museum of the New South.
