Mountain Hope Good Shepherd Clinic Announces Major Expansion
Plans to Benefit Gatlinburg Residents and Workforce
Gatlinburg, a town known for its scenic beauty, is about to witness a transformative change in its healthcare landscape. Mountain Hope Good Shepherd Clinic, in collaboration with community leaders and board members, is thrilled to announce a major expansion plan aimed at benefiting residents and the local workforce.
Our Collective Vision: The new clinic represents a collective vision for a healthier Gatlinburg. Our goal is not just about a new facility but about building a community effort of shared value in access to affordable healthcare for all residents and workforce.
Support the Capital Campaign: To bring this vision to life, a Capital Campaign is now underway with an ambitious goal of raising $1 million. This funding will support the construction, purchase of medical equipment, and initial operational needs of the future community clinic. Planned services include primary care, behavioral therapy, and community health worker support, with on-site laboratory services and other programs already offered at the current location. Patients will be able to pay for services based on a sliding fee scale.
Mission and Impact: The mission of Mountain Hope Good Shepherd Clinic is to provide quality healthcare to the uninsured working or living in Sevier County. Recognizing how social determinants of health impact disparities, the Board of Directors has strategically focused on addressing the lack of transportation and financial barriers to quality healthcare for uninsured individuals. In partnership with committed community stakeholders, the Board of Directors proudly announces the addition of a new Clinic location in Gatlinburg.
Call for Community Unity: This fundraising campaign is not just a call for financial support; it’s an invitation for the community to unite in pursuing a healthier Gatlinburg. With heartfelt gratitude for the community’s support, the Clinic eagerly anticipates the opening, recognizing that this new facility is a shared achievement in the journey towards accessible and community-driven healthcare.
