CELEBRATE NATIONAL HEALTH CENTER WEEK AT THE COMMUNITY HEALTH CENTERS OF LANE COUNTY’S SUPER SATURDAY HEALTH FAIR

News Release from Lane Co. Government
Posted on FlashAlert: August 7th, 2023 10:27 AM

The Community Health Centers of Lane County (CHCLC) will mark the 2023 National Health Center Week (August 6-12) with a Super Saturday Kids Health Fair on Saturday, August 12 from 9 a.m.-2 p.m. at the Delta Oaks Clinic, located at 1022 Green Acres Rd, in Eugene. The event, in partnership with KidSports and PacificSource, will feature scheduled well care exams, immunizations, sports physicals for ages 11-21, integrated oral health services, integrated behavioral health services, gently used sports equipment giveaway, a drawing for gift baskets, snacks, and fun activities. The event is open to everyone.

“As a member of our Federally Qualified Health Center board, I’ve seen first-hand the vital role our Community Health Centers of Lane County play in improving the health of their patientpopulation, which include some of our most vulnerable community members,” said Lane County Commissioner and Board Chair, Pat Farr. “In turn, by achieving better health for those 25,000 individuals, we make a direct and positive impact on the quality of life for all Lane County residents.

The CHCLC consist of 6 clinic locations and provide quality, patient-centered preventive and primary care services, oral health services, and integrated behavioral health services to over 25,000 people in Lane County. The health experts at CHCLC look beyond medical charts to address the factors that may cause poor health, such as poverty, homelessness, substance use, mental illness, access to nutritious food, and unemployment. The CHCLC are a critical piece of the greater Lane County health care system and collaborate with hospitals, local and state governments, social, health and business organizations to improve health outcomes for people who are medically vulnerable.

The annual National Health Centers Week serves as a reminder that the CHCLC mission of improving the health and wellness through access to affordable, holistic healthcare remains crucial today as access to basic care remains a challenge to thousands across the many communities of Lane County, especially in rural Lane County. To address this disparity, CHCLC in partnership with Lane Community College (LCC), South Lane School District, and many others, will soon be opening their first ever rural clinic, the South Lane Clinic in Cottage Grove. This clinic will afford residents of the greater Cottage Grove area with all the quality services they’ve come to expect from the CHCLC, as well as an on-site medical training program through LCC, all in their community. The South Lane Clinic will expand the CHCLC clinic footprint to 7 total clinics.

In addition to being the backbone of healthcare for tens of thousands of people in Lane County, the CHCLC also prides itself in the level of quality care that is delivered day in and day out at their 6 clinics. That quality is evidenced by having some of the best quality assessing metrics in healthcare regionally.

Just a few examples are:

Diabetic care – the CHCLC teams have been successful in helping to control A1C target levels in 80.3% of their diabetic population.

The average for Oregon in 2021 was 69.16%

The national average in 2021 was 67.71%

Hypertension – the CHCLC teams have been successful in helping 75.2% of their hypertensive patients into the target blood pressure range.

The average for Oregon in 2021 was 60.85%

The national average in 2021 was 60.15%

The CHCLC is a division Of Lane County Health & Human Services (LCH&HS). The mission of LC&HS is to protect and promote the health and well-being of all people of Lane County.
