Better Healthcare and a Stronger Voice for Equity

A clinically integrated network of, by and for the Federally Qualified Health Centers of Oregon and the communities they serve.

FQHCs make up the fabric of Oregon’s healthcare

From the craggy Wallowa Mountains in the northeast corner to the sand dunes and tidal pools on the southern coast, 430,000 Oregonians call an FQHC their Medical Home. One in ten Oregonians receive primary care at a community health center in their community, one in four on the Oregon Health Plan. These Federally Qualified Health Centers spring from the communities they serve and provide primary care, mental health care, substance use treatment and dental care to their patients without regard to their ability to pay.

We improve Community Health through Innovation and Collaboration

Transforming the Health Care Payment System

The Oregon Network of Community Health Centers empowers Community Health Centers (CHCs) by forging partnerships with Coordinated Care Organizations (CCOs) and other payers. As a unified health system, the Network facilitates the transition to value-based payment models and works to build financial sustainability for CHCs while striving to improve patient outcomes, experiences, and overall population health. Ultimately, the goal is to create a stronger, healthier population and a more equitable healthcare system.

We chose to join and invest in the Oregon Network of Community health Center to share the value of FQHCs throughout Oregon and to come together as a larger voice. My hopes are that we can come together and make it easier as a collective to provide better care at a lower cost, provide value to our community of payers, our members and more importantly to our patients.
