History, Mission Statement, Our Partners, and Staff Directory
St. Martin’s Healthcare (SMHC) has been a wonderful blessing for DeKalb County. Originally conceived as a Christian outreach healthcare ministry by St. Joseph Catholic Church in Garrett, SMHC opened its doors to the uninsured in October 2005. Striving to follow Christ’s commands in the gospel of Matthew to "love God as He first loved us and to love others as we love ourselves", SMHC’s story is one of love, need, hope, compassion, commitment, collaboration and action.
SMHC is not only alive and well, but continues to thrive and evolve during frequent unnerving times of change and uncertainty in America’s medical landscape. We continue to operate entirely on community support and without government funding. Our patient stories confirm the value and need for "our clinic". We pledge to continue to give people emotional support, love and hope as we strive to meet their healthcare needs.
In order to fulfill Christ’s command to care for the sick and to uphold the sanctity of life from conception to natural death, it is the mission of St. Martin’s Healthcare Services to offer quality healthcare to those individuals without the means to provide for themselves. In this, we strive to help maintain the physical, psychological, emotional and spiritual health of our community.
Our clinic continually strives to care compassionately for any of the Lord’s flock who enter our doors professing healthcare need. "I will seek the lost, and I will bring back the strayed, and I will bandage the injured, and I will strengthen the weak." Ezekiel 24:16
We are so grateful and blessed for our partners who continue to work with St. Martin's Healthcare for the betterment of our communities. Our partners have shown great care and expressed immense support for our organization and we are so honored by their generosity, time, and resources that they so abundantly bestow to St. Martins Healthcare. Their involvement heals individuals and families and we are so grateful to have them on our team.
