Marietta, August 20, 2019—Focusing on quality as well as compassion! For the third year in a row, the Good Samaritan Health Center of Cobb, affectionately known as Good Sam Cobb, achieved the BEST overall clinical performance measures among all federally qualified health centers (nearly 1,400), placing in the top 10 percent for Clinical Quality Measures. Good Sam Cobb delivers affordable, accessible, and comprehensive healthcare for the uninsured and under-insured working poor and indigent in the community. HRSA recognizes Good Sam Cobb as a Health Center Quality Leader!
Dr. Adrienne Polite, Quality Director, says “from the moment a patient walks in our door, our goal is that they would receive the highest level of quality care available. We aim to provide preventive care while also managing chronic diseases simultaneously. Our quality measures help us identify areas with room for improvement as well as identifying those areas in which we are excelling. Once we know the weak spots, we are able to make a plan for improvement.” Good Sam Cobb wants to ensure each patient that passes through the doors feels valued, loved, and well cared for through high quality medical and dental care. Dr. Polite says “My prayer is that those patients who are marginalized in so many other areas of life will feel that their healthcare needs are fully being met through Good Sam Cobb and its strategic partners.” Carlos, a patient says “I would not be able to get my medication or have my diabetes under control without Good Sam Cobb; I don’t know what I would have done without them”.
Over the past 12 years, the Good Samaritan Health Center of Cobb has provided nearly 240,000 patient visits valued well over $21 million dollars. A family centered approach ensures that the clinic delivers high quality primary and preventive medical and dental services in addition to behavioral counseling, pharmaceutical, referral, and health education programs to the low income working poor of the community. Good Sam Cobb is currently accepting new patients and now accepts Medicaid and Medicare.
