Good Samaritan Clinic

Good Samaritan Clinic is a nonprofit providing quality healthcare access to all individuals in the Arkansas River Valley, regardless of their ability to pay. Meredith Eddins, Communications Director, Good Samaritan Clinic, shares more.


The Good Samaritan Clinic is thrilled to be celebrating twenty years of service in 2023! What began as a weekly mission of several medical professionals at Saint Paul United Methodist Church has blossomed into a thriving medical practice providing healthcare to the uninsured and underserved in the River Valley.

Executive Director Patti Kimbrough said, “Sustaining a nonprofit in today’s world is no small feat.” She explained the clinic has been successful thanks to the dedication of the physicians, board of directors, staff and volunteers. “We are grateful for everyone who believes in the clinic’s mission of providing quality, compassionate care to our neighbors in need,” Patti added.

To mark this milestone, the Good Samaritan Clinic’s is hosting a “Best Night of the Year” platinum anniversary party, to be held Friday, April 28, 2023, at Kay Rodgers Park Expo Center in Fort Smith. The evening will feature delicous food, a variety of beverages, a silent and live auction, as well as live music!

Featured entertainment for the evening, The Frontmen, is an amazing trio comprised of the lead singers from three of the all-time best bands in country music. Tim Rushlow (formerly of Little Texas), Larry Stewart (of Restless Heart), and Richie McDonald (formerly of Lonestar) have joined forces and will be singing their greatest hits.

This super group features three dynamic voices with a combined thirty #1 hits. Together they have sold over thirty million albums. Their chart-topping hits include “God Bless Texas,” “I’ll Still Be Loving You,” “Amazed,” and many more.

The theme for the platinum anniversary is Bling & Blue Jeans. Patti said, “Our event is always casual, but since we are celebrating twenty years, we wanted to add the bling!” Attire is still boots and jeans, just with added flair. With non-stop hits from The Frontmen, and an evening filled with food, drinks and fabulous prizes, the Best Night of the Year is an event not to be missed.

While Patti and the Good Samaritan Clinic staff are grateful to celebrate this milestone, they are looking forward to the future. “We are constantly seeking ways to improve, expand and better serve our community.” The clinic provides general healthcare and patient education on a daily basis, and offers specialty services such as counseling, chiropractic, and vision care once a month. “We want to expand so we can see more patients and help more people. We see little miracles happen here every day, and we’re looking forward to the next twenty years of serving those who need us most.”
