GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. - A local clinic makes its grand re-opening debut in the Grand Valley.
The Good Samaritan Clinic re-opened their facility Saturday morning at the Downtown Vineyard Church.
The clinic is free of charge and welcomed 10 new patients on its reopening day.
The facility opened its doors after realizing there are 15,000 people lacking healthcare in Mesa County.
They offer wellness checks, school physicals, and mental health counseling.
Their goal is to be opened for another 25 years.
"We want to be sustainable. We are trying to provide care as insurance changes and the community grows. They'll probably be a lot more people in need of some type of care who cannot access it because they don't have any financial or opportunities to see other services," said Mental Health Practitioner Kari Weirath.
The clinic will be every open Saturday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. by appointment only. You can contact them at 970-712-6518.
