Nonprofit health center in Delta to close when funds are exhausted
Published: June 13,2013
GREENVILLE — The Good Samaritan Health Center will be closing its doors by the end of the year or as soon as federal funds run out.
The Greenville nonprofit opened in 2006 as a part-time clinic and became a full-time primary-care facility through grants as well as funds from various organizations.
Andy Sanders, chairman of the center’s board, tells the Delta Democrat Times the timeline for keeping the center open was limited after funding from Delta Health Alliance was cut in October.
Sanders says the board announced the closing to give patients adequate time to find another primary-care provider.
An official closing date has not been set.
Officials say the health center will be staffed from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Thursday as long as funds last.
