Good Samaritan Health Services, a nonprofit organization providing mobile health care to individuals with limited access, serves over 6,000 patients a year. It partners with churches to lift citizens out of poor health and poverty.
“We want to get our patients on their feet and assist them in breaking that cycle,” said Dr. John Crouch, founder. “Partnering with churches helps provide a holistic approach focusing on physical, emotional and spiritual health.”
Medical trucks travel to 14 sites, providing exam rooms, a lab and a pharmacy with free or low-cost prescriptions, which reduces the prevalence of emergency room visits.
