Who We Are
“He went to him and bandaged his wounds…Go and do likewise.” – Luke 10:34-37
Demonstrate the love of Christ through providing quality, affordable, and accessible health and dental services to the poor and uninsured.
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
