(Mountain View) – The Good Samaritan Care Clinic in Mountain View received a $4000 grant Wednesday from Mercy Health Group.
Arlene Moomaw, Project Coordinator with Mercy Clinic, told Ozark Radio News that the Good Samaritan Care Clinic was one of seven non-profit groups chosen for a grant:
Moomaw says that Force For Good tries to help fund both rural and city groups:
Sheri Noble, Administrator at the Good Samaritan Care Clinic, told us that the clinic provides a variety of services to people in the area without insurance, Medicare or Medicaid:
Noble continued, saying that Mercy has been behind the clinic since day one, providing volunteers and paying for testing services:
The estimated cost of lab work in 2013 was $234,000, which was covered for the clinic by Mercy.
Noble says that the $4,000 grant will go toward diabetic care:
The clinic receives monetary and in-kind donations, along with time volunteered by the staff. However, medicines and other items needed by the clinic do come at a cost, with Noble adding that donated time and money is always needed. The clinic has 125 active volunteers, and it takes about $8,000 per month to run the clinic and pay for all of the supplies.
