After 11 years in its temporary home, Good Samaritan Health & Wellness
Center is moving to a new permanent building to be built on the existing clinic
site. As volunteers are well aware, every inch of the existing building is in constant use and, as demand for services continues to grow, space needs have become more pressing.
The Ground Breaking Ceremony on April 22, 2013, was led by Bishop Robert C.
Wright, Episcopal Bishop of Atlanta, and attended by members of the Good Samaritan Board, staff, volunteers, community leaders and patients.
Under the master plan, Good Samaritanís new home will be constructed in three phases. Each phase will add a wood-frame-on-concrete-slab clinical building. Phase one, a onestory 4,000 square foot building, will house multiple medical functions as well as the pharmacy. The lobby/waiting area will be included in phase one and 24 new parking spaces will be added. Four of the existing trailers will be removed at the completion of phase one, the remaining three trailers will be removed once phase two is complete.
The new building is dedicated to Dr. Joseph A. Wilber, who devoted his heart, mind, and soul to the care of others.
