All services are open and available for all, whether insured or uninsured, assured Erwin Teuber, executive director of “OHSU Family Medicine at Richmond”. “This collaborative venture is intended to increase access to, and promote care for, the whole person – both physical and mental/behavioral.”

While the new clinic accepts patients coming from any geographic location, Teuber told THE BEE that the new clinic’s service emphasis area is south to Woodstock Boulevard and east to S.E. 82nd Avenue.

Most of the same services currently available at “OHSU Family Medicine at Richmond”, only three blocks to the west at 39th (Chavez), will also be available at the new walk-in clinic, he said.

The non-emergency health care clinic is located at Cascadia Plaza, 4212 S.E. Division Street, and is open from 8 am, to 8 p.m, Monday through Friday; and 9 am to 1 pm on Saturdays.
