We hold as our primary responsibility the health, safety, welfare, and dignity of all human beings. We will devote our time and energy to all in need.
Good Samaritan Health Care of Gwinnett, Inc., a 501(c)3 non-profit organization, is committed to caring for the uninsured and underinsured working poor in our community. It is the aim of Good Samaritan Gwinnett to not only meet the physical needs but also address the spiritual needs of our patients through prayer and biblical counseling. We serve the community by helping to eliminate health disparities for uninsured and underinsured populations, and our programs help to reduce the cost of indigent care on the public health care delivery system.
We offer our services to all people regardless of race, color, religion, gender, sexual orientation, national origin or immigration status, and we do so with a loving evangelical Christian staff.
Located in Norcross, Georgia, the Center provides individuals with a wide-range of services typically found in a family physician's office, such as well child and adult exams, chronic disease management, preventive care and women's health. Services are designed to be affordable for the uninsured and underinsured children, women and men of Gwinnett and surrounding counties. We are a separate organization from but partners in ministry with Good Samaritan Health Center in Atlanta and Good Samaritan Health Center of Cobb.
