The Samaritan Health Center was launched by Jericho Partnership Inc. after several years of work by its founder, Bill Beattie, who saw the need for a pediatric clinic for Danbury’s uninsured children. He recognized the gap between children with medical insurance and those without it, and decided to create a Christ-centered medical clinic to bridge the gap.
The Samaritan Health Center opened in 2008 as a state-licensed outpatient clinic with initial funding for three years from Jericho Partnership. The 501(c)(3) Center is now fully funded by private donations. It is in the Jericho Samaritan House building at 13 Rose St. in downtown Danbury.
