Samaritan Health Ministries Reduces Clinic Hours Due to Lack of Funding

Updated: Apr 4

Effective Date: Friday, March 29, 2024

Leander, Texas - Samaritan Health Ministries (SHM), a physicians' grassroots organization serving the Williamson County Texas community for over 25 years, is having to make massive changes to their operations due to the lack of funding at this time. Effective Friday, March 29, 2024, new clinic hours will be:


Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday, 9:00 am - 2:00 pm

Clinic Note: Outside of Clinic Hours, messages are not able to be received by staff. If patients have an emergency, they should call 911 or go to the nearest ER.


Donations are greatly needed to continue providing primary care, women's healthcare, and pharmacy services to meet the needs of our community and those we serve. With limited professional medical staff and volunteers, the reduction of clinic hours will pause dental services and additional operations impacting the number of patients receiving care. SHM will continue to focus on providing exceptional patient care and resources through our transformational programs and whole-community solutions.


SHM Executive Director, John M. Clark, states, "It is a very hard decision we are having to make at this time to cut back operations. We have a very large waiting list of patients to be seen by our physicians and care teams. The reduction in hours will greatly impact how our uninsured patients receive care and attention. We strive to build strong connections between caregivers and patients, providing transformational care that lifts our patients out of their current state and leads them into a new hope for their life and for their health! We are working to connect with compassionate donors and available grants to continue serving others with the love of Jesus Christ, caring for the most vulnerable in Williamson County."
