Good Samaritan Medical Center

Begun in 1987 in a small classroom, the GSMC has grown into a 24/7 medical center occupying over 2.5 acres, and serving a population of 150,000.

Filling the Gaps in Healthcare

The Good Samaritan Medical Center is Olancho’s most modern source of affordable healthcare. There is a huge gap in medical access and healthcare due to the region’s geography, economic limitations, and it’s role as an illegal drug route. The majority of the population cannot afford the expense of traveling hours to larger cities for basic medical care, let alone specialized services.

International Care

In order to meet the healthcare needs of our patients, we enlist healthcare professionals from across the country as well as from outside Honduras. Our local staff work alongside over 20 specialists from across the country as well as from outside Honduras. We also host medical brigades from the United States, who come to share their expertise, and experience the joy of working with our staff and patients.

A Place for Spiritual Healing

The GSMC is a place for spiritual as well as physical restoration. Our staff includes two full-time chaplains, who serve the spiritual needs of both our patients and our staff. In addition to patient visits, our chaplains have developed a staff-focused program that includes study groups, worship services, and an annual retreat.
