Good Samaritan Health Center of Gwinnett is a nonprofit organization committed to caring for the uninsured and underinsured working poor in our community. Good Sam Gwinnett committed to its founding purpose, to obey the teaching of Jesus Christ and demonstrate our faith for the glory of God by caring for the less fortunate. We offer a holistic approach to healthcare that includes comprehensive, family-centered services.

Good Sam Gwinnett is not a free clinic, urgent care, or emergency care facility. We provide routine non-emergency medical and dental services for our patients. We do not provide after-hours services or physician on-call response. If you experience what you believe to be a medical emergency you must seek services at a hospital emergency room.

Located in Norcross, Georgia, we are the only safety-net clinic in the area offering medical, dental, and pharmacy services under one roof. It is the aim of Good Sam Gwinnett to not only meet physical needs but to also address the spiritual needs of our patients through prayer. Good Sam Gwinnett sees patients by appointment and as walk-ins. Services are designed to be affordable for the uninsured and underinsured.

We offer our services to all people regardless of race, color, religion, gender, sexual orientation, national origin, veteran status or immigration status, and we do so with a loving evangelical Christian staff as well as volunteers of all professions from around the globe. We love the rich diversity of the people we serve and who work within the clinic, and we love telling the world about Jesus, one guest at a time.

Our Goals and Their Impact:

1. Provide quality low-cost primary healthcare and dental services to the uninsured in order to eliminate health disparities for poor and uninsured populations

2. Decrease the demand of the uninsured for non-emergent medical services on the emergency room in order to help reduce the cost of indigent care on the public health care delivery system

3. Provide a venue for matriculating future medical professionals to advance their educational goals while serving the poor of our community in order to help disadvantaged students prepare for employment in the health and dental fields.

Mission statement

Demonstrate the love of Christ through providing quality, affordable, and accessible health and dental services to the poor and uninsured.

Statement of faith

We believe the Bible to be the inspired, infallible, authoritative Word of God.

We believe that there is one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

We believe in the deity and humanity of Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, in His present rule as Head of the Church, and in His personal return in power and glory.

We believe that for the salvation of lost and sinful men, regeneration by the Holy Spirit is absolutely essential.

We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit, by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a godly life.

We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost - they that are saved unto the resurrection of life, and they that are lost unto the resurrection of damnation.

We believe in the spiritual unity of believers in the Lord Jesus Christ and that all true believers are members of His body, the Church.

We believe that we must dedicate ourselves to prayer, to the service of our Lord, to His authority over our lives.

We believe that the ministry of evangelism (sharing and proclaiming the message of salvation only possible by grace through faith in Jesus Christ) and discipleship (helping followers of Christ grow up into maturity in Christ) is a responsibility of all followers of Jesus Christ.

We believe that God created all human beings in His image. Therefore, we believe that human life is sacred from conception to its natural end; that we must honor the physical and spiritual needs of all people; following Christ's example, we believe that every person should be treated with love, dignity and respect.
