From Special Reports

Coweta Samaritan Clinic has been awarded a $100,000 grant by the Georgia Baptist Health Care Ministry Foundation (GBHCMF). The Clinic, which provides free primary and specialty healthcare services to uninsured adult Coweta County residents, will utilize the grant over the course of 2022 and 2023 for its Chronic Disease Management and Specialty Referral programs.

Clinic founder, Board Chairman and volunteer Medical Director, Kay R. Crosby, M.D., received the grant award at the GBHCMF Grant Award Luncheon earlier this month. This luncheon allows the GBHCMF’s Board the opportunity to recognize those ministries throughout the state that have demonstrated effective and efficient direct health care services to their local communities.

“The Georgia Baptist Health Care Ministry Foundation has been a longtime supporter of the Clinic,” said Kelly Hines, Coweta Samaritan Clinic Executive Director. “We remain tremendously grateful to the Foundation and its Board of Trustees for their faithful and generous support of our efforts to serve our neighbors in need.”

GBHCMF is both honored and blessed to provide financial support to ministries like Coweta Samaritan Clinic. It is the GBHCMF’s hope that these funds will help lighten the burden of those who offer health care services, as well as those who ultimately receive those benefits.

Organizations receiving an award represent some of the most efficient “hands-on” providers of health care services in the state. They have also demonstrated excellent core competency service to those in need of health care.

GBHCMF believes the Coweta Samaritan Clinic has demonstrated an active service that aligns with the GBHCMF’s core mission to demonstrate the love of Jesus Christ through the provision of direct health care services. For more than 100 years, the Georgia Baptist Health Care Ministry has offered a ministry of healing to those in need.  Providing grant funds to these nonprofit health care providers fulfills their mission of service through local organizations.
