2019 Good Samaritan Health Center of Cobb's Annual Charity Golf Tournament

 

Our mission is
"to spread the love of Christ by providing quality healthcare to those in need."
 

 

Good Samaritan Health Center of Cobb , a 501(c)3 non-profit Federally Qualified Health Center, opened its doors in 2006 with a vision of providing affordable quality healthcare to those in need. The center was co-founded by Reverend Grant Cole, pastor of Connection Point Church and Dr. Jack Kennedy, Director of Cobb & Douglas Public County Health, after recognizing that medical bills and unexpected dental emergencies were the root cause of extreme financial setbacks and diminishing quality of life in the community.

Good Sam Cobb provides medical, dental and pharmacy services to the underserved, and often uninsured and below the poverty line, populations of Cobb County and the Greater Atlanta Metropolitan area. Due to the fact that Medicaid did not expand coverage in Georgia, the majority of patients are left between the gap of Medicaid coverage and the Healthcare Exchange. Many patients utilize the ER for illnesses that could otherwise be controlled by a primary care provider such as diabetes, high cholesterol, the flu, etc. Most dental patients come to the clinic needing severe restorative dental work, some of whom have never before had a dental cleaning.  For those individuals, Good Sam Cobb has the privilege of being their place of healing and encouragement.

Since its inception in 2006, Good Sam Cobb has grown from providing 4,050 to 27,790 patient visits in 2018. These visits have been expanded to include medical and dental specialists as well as laboratory and radiology services through volunteer and partner specialists. Good Sam Cobb relies heavily on volunteers to supplement and enhance services around the center.

In 2018, 176 in-house volunteers provided 13,675 hours of service, valuing at $399,214 worth of care. On average, patients of the Good Samaritan Health Center of Cobb pay $30 for $415.95 worth of care. And for every $100 donated, Good Samaritan Health Center of Cobb is able to provide $ 789 worth of care.
