The Good Sam Institute

Convene, Publish and Educate.

The landscape of healthcare is rapidly changing, but one thing remains constant: the Good Samaritan Health Center exists to spread Christ’s love through quality healthcare to those in need. Charitable clinics like Good Sam are an essential part of our state’s safety net and produce excellent outcomes for patients who otherwise may not have received care.

We created the Good Sam Institute to further our clinic’s impact and participate as a thought leader in charitable care. Specifically, the Good Sam Institute’s purpose is to convene healthcare professionals, publish cutting-edge research, and educate the next generation of providers to improve the quality of healthcare for those in need.

Good Sam’s Full Circle of Health® model embodies a focus on social determinants of health which have been proven to impact health and longevity. You can watch our informational video here.

If you have questions about our model, would like to schedule a virtual speaker from Good Sam, or would want to take a virtual tour of The Center please contact our Development Team.
