Good Samaritan Health Center of Cobb is a unique resource for patients who need
affordable care and a solution for our growing county's burdened healthcare
system. Modeled after the existing Good Samaritan Health Center that has operated
in downtown Atlanta since 1999, Good Sam of Cobb is scheduled to open in the
spring of 2005.
Dr. Jack Kennedy, Past Chairman, Department of General Surgery, WellStar Health
System and Grant Cole, Director of Parents with a Purpose, are the Cobb county
citizens leading the efforts to establish Good Samaritan in our community. Through
a generous land grant, the center will be strategically located in one of the
county's neediest areas near the corner of Austell Road and Roberta Drive in
Marietta. When the center is built and staffed, we expect to average 500 patient
visits a month almost immediately.

The Center is able to provide medical services to adults and children. Primary care services are offered on site by physicians, nurse practitioners, nurses, and medical assistants. Many subspecialties are also available on site including orthopedics, cardiology, physical therapy, radiology, pulmonology, mammography, OB-GYN, and others. Good Sam has partnered with many community providers for other specialty referrals.
Dental services are available to both adults and children. Onsite services are comprehensive and include hygiene, problem visits, root canal therapy, crowns and bridges, and dentures. Dentists, dental hygienists, and dental assistants serve our patients.
Psychological counseling is offered onsite by licensed professional counselors. Biblically based, the counseling department addresses each patient's mental health as one component of overall health. Counseling is available to individuals and families, adults and children.
The Center provides asthma, diabetes, and nutrition counseling to its patients. Pharmacists, pharmacy students, and licensed educators work closely with each patient's physician to provide critical lifesaving information. Counseling is available one-on-one as well as in group settings.
The front office and many other staff persons offer social services to the Center's patients; patients are given names and phone numbers of appropriate social service agencies. Additionally, a Medicaid caseworker has been provided by the state weekly to meet with families and individuals to determine eligibility for state sponsored programs.
