About this Division

The Community Health Centers of Lane County (CHCLC) is a dynamic, growing organization that has been providing comprehensive primary care and behavioral health services to the citizens of Lane County since 2004. We operate six primary care clinics in which we provide a broad array of services to adults and children that are organized around care teams who work collaboratively to support our patients. Our integrated care teams include primary care providers, nurses, pharmacists, medical assistants, patient care coordinators, community health workers, and behavioral health specialists. This model of primary care prioritizes the patient, who has increased access to other services beyond general medical care at our clinics. Our care teams also help patients reach their optimal health status by addressing social determinants of health barriers to care such as transportation, food insecurity, or housing. The CHCLC provide affordable primary care for the whole family – infants, children, adolescents, adults, and seniors – as well as alternative services such as acupuncture, and preventative dental services. At the Community Health Centers of Lane County, we focus on integrated care that values the whole person. Our services encompass not only treatment and prevention of illness, but also health education and behavioral health services.

We also provide preventative dental services to children in schools, Head Start, and WIC locations throughout Lane County. CHCLC provides services to approximately 30,000 individuals each year, and is a primary source of care for uninsured and underinsured individuals. CHCLC is a Federally Qualified Health Center whose mission is to serve the community by offering excellent care and eliminating barriers to healthcare.
