Good Samaritan Clinic of Jackson County programs and services
Why We Serve
The need for a free clinic in our community has not been eliminated, as there are many who do not qualify for Medicaid or the new tax-subsidies through the Affordable Care Act. Our free medical clinic continues to enroll new patients and serve as the medical safety net for those who have nowhere else to turn.
For many of the most vulnerable people in our community, we provide vital care and access to treatment that allows our neighbors to live healthier lives. As a nonprofit organization funded solely by grants and private donations, we are grateful for the generosity of our partnering agencies, community organizations, businesses, and faith-based groups who serve alongside us.
At our Provider Clinic appointments are made for patients to be seen by volunteer physicians, physician assistants, and nurse practitioners. Volunteer Provider clinic operates on a weekly basis, occurring every Tuesday afternoon and evening (3-9pm).
Our Nurse Case Managers coordinate and provide patient care at our Nurse Clinic and are available for follow-up questions, referrals, medicine refills, education, and patient applications. Nurse Clinic operates Monday-Thursday (8:30-4:30).
