Essential Health Clinic needs volunteers

The Essential Health Clinic, a volunteer-based medical clinic that serves more than 130,000 uninsured residents in Washington County, is looking for physician support.

Physician volunteers are needed to staff the clinic’s walk-in patient hours on Monday and Thursday evenings in Hillsboro, and on Wednesday evenings in Tigard. Primary care providers – including physicians, nurse practitioners and physician assistants who specialize in family medicine, and internal medicine, emergency medicine and pediatric practitioners – are welcome.

A typical shift lasts three to four hours and includes dinner, as a thank you, prior to the volunteer shift. Liability insurance is covered by Washington County.

If you are interested in volunteering, contact Carolyn Domme at 503-974-6440 or at

Providence Health Plan supports the clinic as part of our Mission to provide compassionate service to the poor and vulnerable among us.
