Good Shepherd Clinic ribbon cutting celebrates move to larger facility

With the snip of a ribbon, Good Shepherd Clinic officially opened its new facility at 45 Medical Center Drive in Dawson County.

With growing services and an increasing patient base, Good Shepherd Clinic (GSC) had outgrown its former location.

“We are delighted,” said Dr. David Moore, clinic medical director. “The 5,000 square foot office is ideally located, laid out perfectly to meet the needs of our patients, and to provide space to expand our services.”

Good Shepherd Clinic has come a long way since its humble beginning in the basement of Grace Presbyterian Church in Dawsonville, its website states. The 501(C)3 non-profit clinic is a member of the Georgia Charitable Care Network, providing free medical, dental, vision, hearing, and prescription medication services to eligible residents of Dawson County who are uninsured and cannot afford healthcare. GSC estimates the clinic will serve 390 patients in 2017, a 15 percent increase over 2016.
