Due to steady growth in terms of services provided and patients treated, the Good Shepherd Clinic (GSC) is moving to a much larger facility just a short distance from its former location. GSC is grateful to Northside Hospital for providing the modern facility that has housed the clinic for the last five years. The new facility, located in the medical building behind Burger King on Highway 53 in Dawsonville, is made possible by the generosity of Northeast Georgia Health System.
“We are delighted,” says Dr. David Moore, Medical Director for the clinic. “The 5,000 square foot office is ideally located, laid out perfectly to meet the needs of our patients, and provides space to expand our services.”
After signing a five-year agreement, Jane Stuckey, Board Chairman of GSC, said “We are indebted to Northeast Georgia Health System for making the facility available. We look forward to growing our operation and helping to improve the overall health of Dawson County residents.”
Jo Brewer, a Board member of GSC and Executive Director of Medical Plaza 400, a service of Northeast Georgia Health System, said “We are excited about working closer with the Good Shepherd Clinic. Providing an expanded facility will help them reach a larger group of people in need of their services.”
The Good Shepherd Clinic has come a long way since its humble beginning in the basement of Grace Presbyterian Church in Dawsonville. The clinic is now a 501(C)3 non-profit organization that is a member of the Georgia Charitable Care Network. GSC provides free medical, dental, vision, hearing, and prescription medication services to eligible residents of Dawson County who are uninsured and cannot afford health care.
