Rick Buechler Custom Homes Steps up to Support St. Mary’s Good Samaritan Foundation’s Capital Campaign

Rick Buechler Custom Homes is a Silver Gift Level ($10,000 – $19,999) member of Good Samaritan Foundation’s Business Partners Society. 

“We are proud of our Lake Oconee community and excited to be a part of the St. Mary’s Good Samaritan Foundation Campaign,” said Rick and Kim Buechler.  “Providing quality state-of-the-art healthcare is instrumental to our growth, both as a community and as a business.”

Rick has been building custom homes for 37 years, first for 15 years in Columbus, Ohio, and now celebrating 22 years at Lake Oconee.  Rick and his wife Kim started Rick Buechler Custom Homes in 1999.  Together they have built over 200 homes within Reynolds Lake Oconee, sharing a commitment to build the best – in quality, craftsmanship and style – while providing the best building experience.  Core to their approach is listening to how clients see themselves living in their new home in order to build the perfect space that fulfils their way of life and leisure.  

“Thank you, Rick and Kim Buechler, for signing on as supporters of the Foundation’s capital campaign and for your continued generosity toward the hospital,” said Riezl Baker, Good Samaritan Foundation board member. “We are so grateful for businesses like Rick Buechler Custom Homes for stepping up and supporting the hospital’s mission.”

About Good Samaritan Foundation’s Capital Campaign:

St. Mary’s Good Samaritan Hospital’s 2019 Community Health Needs Assessment found that cardiovascular health is the number one health need in our community.  In response, Good Samaritan Hospital created a plan to provide enhanced cardiac diagnostic services that were not then available in our community. In September 2019, St. Mary’s Good Samaritan Foundation launched the “Expanding Technology, Elevating Care” Capital Campaign to raise $3 million with which to purchase a 640-slice CT scanner, permanent MRI system, and build space for a Cardiac Stress Lab and the new MRI system.  After the first $1 million was raised in late 2020, the CT scanner was installed and has been operational since January 2021.
