After six years of offering free basic medical and mental health services to anyone in the community needing such, the Samaritan Free Clinic has closed its doors. The clinic operated at Luther Hall on the campus of Paradise Lutheran Church on Sundays from 2:00 to 5:00 p.m.
The reason for this regrettable move is the reality that we are not able to get enough health care providers from the community to volunteer their services on Sundays. We have made heroic efforts to remain open, scaling back hours , and even days of operation, but without a doctor (or a Physician's Assistant) present, we cannot legally see/treat patients.
We hope and pray that there will come a time in the future when we will again be able to offer this vital community service.
A huge thank you to the volunteers who gave of their time and energy to offer this vital service to the Ridge community.
