Good Samaritan Free Clinic: Embodying the Good Samaritan example

Good Samaritan Clinic of Jackson County was founded in 2001 to fill a critical healthcare gap. A faith-based nonprofit, we embrace the Good Samaritan parable.

The Good Samaritan didn’t just help in a crisis—he invested in long-term healing and recovery.  This man gave up his own ride to carry the injured man, took him to an inn, and cared for him. Then he promised to follow up, and paid for expenses incurred.

Our goal is to care for our patients in much the same way. To take responsibility for someone’s long-term health because it’s the right thing to do.

“With each patient, we try to prevent illness and improve quality of life focusing on chronic illness. I get great satisfaction in giving back, and seeing improvements in their health and quality of life.”
— David Trigg, MD, Medical Director
