Our mission is to glorify God through the provision of medical care, including spiritual and social support,
to underserved adults in Haywood County.
The Good Samaritan Clinic is a 501(c)3 nonprofit medical clinic serving adults in Haywood County. The clinic currently operates in two locations within the county, Canton and Waynesville.
The Good Samaritan Clinic has several programs available to the community.
- Primary care for uninsured. Patients must be between the ages of 18-64, uninsured, and below 200% of the Federal poverty level.
- Primary care for new Medicaid enrollees. Patients who do not have a primary caregiver in the county are welcome to become patients.
- Mental health services. Patients who receive primary care through the clinic can access mental health services at no charge through the clinic. Uninsured adults can receive counseling at no charge.
The Good Samaritan Clinic is just like any other doctor’s office. We see patients who struggle with high cholesterol. We treat patients with diabetes and manage their medications. When our patients are sick we provide medical care the same day they call. We are their primary care giver, but to some of our patients we are much more.
In 2010 the Good Samaritan Clinic provided over 5,800 patient visits to adults in Haywood County. That is the equivalent of almost $830,000 in medical care services. The Good Samaritan Clinic provides life changing healthcare and mental health services to many who are struggling financially to make ends meet.
Being uninsured is a road-block to healthcare. Without insurance many people can’t afford primary care. Patients certainly can’t afford the high costs associated with diagnostic testing, specialist visits, or medication. Many uninsured adults postpone treatment until they can afford it. This delay can complicate conditions.
Just like the parable that Jesus told of the Good Samaritan, the staff and volunteers at the clinic are following his instructions and caring for our neighbors in need. Join this opportunity to give. This is your opportunity to help your neighbors in need. 68% of operating funds come from churches and individuals in our community. Without this support the clinic will cease to exist.
Give to a local mission who has been serving your neighbors since 1999. Now more than ever our patients need your financial support!
