Sturgis Chamber welcomes new member Good Shepherd Clinic with ribbon cutting Wednesday.

STURGIS, S.D. The Sturgis Area Chamber of Commerce & Visitors Bureau welcomed a new member today.

A ribbon cutting for Good Shepherd Clinic, Inc. was held at the Chamber.

GSC provides quality medical and emergency dental care for people without health insurance and takes the light of Christ into the community.

Good Shepherd Clinic is a major health care and resource partner within Northern Hills. Begun as a ministry of Our Savior’s Lutheran Church, Good Shepherd Clinic, Inc. opened its doors in 2009.  GSC proudly serves our local communities through our mission of providing quality health and emergency dental care for the uninsured. Approximately 15% of these residents live below the poverty level and do not have health insurance. GSC patients often acknowledge that choosing to pay monthly necessity expenses, such as rent, utilities, food, and staples, versus optional personal health care, challenges them. In addition, each Monday evening, Our Savior’s Lutheran Church is transformed into a welcoming and safe environment for patients to receive caring, professional, and confidential clinic services, a warm meal, and a path for improved health and better life conditions. GSC deters emergency room visits, engages our communities, and humbly offers life-changing service for families with a sense of hope, respect, and dignity. Our 501 (c) 3 and ecumenical organization continue to sustain GSC’s mission through:

Funding sources: grants, private and corporate donations, memorials, and fund-raising events.

90 trained volunteers

16 Health Care Providers (rotating schedules)

15 Dentists (rotating schedules)

12-member Board of Directors

4 Pharmacy Partners (Safeway, Walmart, Monument Health, and Prairie Hills Pharmacy) for discounted medications.
