GREENVILLE, Miss. (AP) — The Good Samaritan Health Center will close Nov. 1 after efforts to find alternate funding failed.
The Greenville center opened in 2006 as a part-time, nonprofit clinic that served low-income patients. It became a full-time, primary-care facility. It provides care and health education programs to its patients.
The center lost funding from the Delta Health Alliance in October 2012 and officials announced it would close.
Good Samaritan Chairman Andy Sanders tells the Delta Democrat Times (http://bit.ly/1dIbvDc ) that despite repeated efforts, the center was unable to find alternate money.
Kim Dowdy, the clinic's director, says patients are being provided with a list of area health care providers, their medical records and prescription information.
Dowdy says many pharmaceutical companies have programs to help fill prescriptions for low-income families.
