History of the Good Samaritan Clinic:
From their website: According to Registered Nurse Jerry Boise, Good Samaritan opened its doors in 1990 in a small house near his residence along Grand Boulevard in Holiday. Boise began volunteering at the clinic nearly 19 years ago. By that time it had moved to a double wide trailer at 4035 Thys Road, just north of State Road 54.
In September 2005, a $900,000 federal grant the clinic received via Pasco County helped Good Samaritan move to the Aspen Street building which formerly housed the Florida Cancer Institute.
The clinic now has five paid staff members, four grant-funded staffers and 80 volunteers, according to CEO Melissa Fahy.
“We’ve come a long way in 25 years,” said Fahy, who came on board nearly nine years ago.
