Good Samaritan clinics across the Midlands giving medical care to the community

The clinics are located in Columbia, Chapin, West Columbia, Edisto Island and Lexington.

CHAPIN, S.C. — Medical care is something vital to quality of life. That's why the Good Samaritan Clinic was founded in South Carolina.

"When you're having medical problems, so much of your life can start to unravel," Shannon Madden, executive director said.

The clinics are located in Columbia, Chapin, West Columbia, Edisto Island and Lexington. 

"I think it's a wonderful clinic," volunteer nurse Loni Scavone said. "We serve the uninsured, the underserved. Even if we capture one or two patients during our evenings, we feel satisfied that we've done our job."

Even through COVID-19, they've been serving and surpassing the needs of South Carolinians. They set up tents outside to treat patients while social distancing and masking up. 

People hear about them through word of mouth mostly, but the location in Chapin just got a big sign to put up last month. 

They're still looking to get more nurse and doctor volunteers and clients at their Lexington location. 

Executive director Shannon Madden says she still remembers the countless faces who tell her they feel their lives have started over after walking inside. 

"As he was leaving, there were several of us in a group that he was passing by to exit, and he stopped and tears filled his eyes, and he just said thank y'all so much, I love y'all so much," Madden said. 

Touching lives and mending wounds. That's exactly what these people are doing and will continue to do.
