Total Health Community Clinic
Total Health Community Clinic is a 501(c)3 Community Health Center, partially federally-funded under Section 330 of the Public Health Service Act.
The clinic is partially grant funded enabling it to provide primary healthcare services to individuals and families with incomes under 200% of the Federal Poverty Level at an affordable cost. The clinic also sees patients who are typically “underinsured”, i.e., those with the Oregon Health Plan, Medicare, and high-deductible commercial plans, which aren’t readily accepted by private medical providers because they pay so little. Nearly all of Total Health Community Clinic’s patients are either uninsured or underinsured.
Most of the clinic’s patients experience difficulties in accessing healthcare services other than just financial ones. Some are mentally ill, some are homeless, others don't speak English, still others might be disabled, or simply lack transportation. The clinic’s mission is to assist in knocking down as many of these barriers to care as possible.
In calendar year 2010, West Salem Clinic and Total Health Community Clinic provided care to over 11,000 patients in Marion and Polk Counties. Although we are proud of the services we deliver, the uninsured alone in Marion and Polk Counties is estimated at well over 50,000 persons. (Oregon Population Survey, 2008).
