NewGeneralFB2014 National Health Center Week 2014, August 10-16th, celebrates community health centers across the country.

The OHSU Family Medicine at Richmond Clinic at 3930 SE Division Street is one of the many health centers to provide access to high quality, affordable, patient-centered care in communities where people live and work. OHSU Richmond has provided world class health care to SE Portland since 1995. It is recognized by the Oregon Health Authority as a top tier Patient Centered Primary Care Home. The staff takes pride in making sure every individual is treated with dignity and respect regardless of barriers like social history, medical history, or economic status. Since becoming a Federally Qualified Heath Center in 2012, the clinic has expanded its services and its ability to provide care to more patients, currently reaching over 12,000 people in our area.

OHSU Richmond recently added a Walk-In Clinic at 4212 SE Division Street for urgent or preventive health needs. Anyone from the community, insured or self-pay, can walk in without appointments and may utilize the pharmacy and x-ray services of the OHSU Richmond clinic as needed. The Walk-In clinic is open 8am- 7:30pm Monday through Friday and 9am-2:30pm on Saturday. A sliding scale for Self-pay patients helps reduce barriers to receiving care. To ensure the community is both physically and mentally healthy, the Walk-In clinic collaborates with Cascadia Behavioral Healthcare to offer access to their services.

Following National Health Week, OHSU Richmond and the Walk-In clinic are celebrating the One Year Anniversary of the Walk-In Clinic. On August 21st from 3pm-6pm, join us on the lawn outside the clinic for an ice cream social. Come meet the staff and learn more about both clinics. Everyone is welcome!
