Mission Statement

Good Samaritan Health Services is committed to improving medical services by providing consistent, quality, comprehensive medical care for the uninsured and underserved in our community by collaborating with churches and other community partners.

Description

Good Samaritan Health Services (GSHS) endeavors to reach those who need our help the most and to help improve the poor state of health for many in our area. We utilize two state-of-the-art Mobile Medical Trucks to bring life-saving medical care-doctors, medicines, labs-to places where at-risk individuals live. We serve uninsured and underserved individuals, many of whom live below the poverty line. All of our services are provided at no charge to our patients.

Good Samaritan Health Services is a medical home to patients with chronic health issues. Many patients require regular medical management, such as those with diabetes, hypertension, chronic pulmonary disease, congestive heart failure, etc.

Good Samaritan Health Services currently hosts 54 monthly clinics located across the greater Tulsa area at 13 sites. In 2017, GSHS provided care at 5,410 patient visits at 466 clinics. There are currently 1,700 regular patients who consider GSHS their primary health care provider.

We partners with local churches who provide volunteers and facilities for registration, triage, and often translation services. We collaborate with community partners and medical providers to secure medical treatment outside the scope of what we can provide.

At Good Samaritan, we strive to offer our patients the care they need to live a healthy life full of hope. Our goal is to lift our patients out of poor health and see transformation take place in their lives.
