Women and infants clinic to reopen
Washington County Health and Human Services plan to re-open a Tigard clinic for mothers and infants on Monday, after it was shut down in October.
The countys Women, Infants and Children program provides breastfeeding support groups, vouchers for healthy foods and other nutritional education and support to low-income pregnant women and families with young children across Washington County.
Plans are to open the new clinic at the Hilltop Business Center, 7360 S.W. Hunziker Road.
For years, the WIC program was based in a health clinic off Southwest Royalty Parkway.
That location was home to a clinic that provided vaccines, testing for HIV and sexually transmitted diseases and cancer screenings to patients. Essential Health Clinic also operated a free urgent care clinic out of the site untilit shut down in March.
County officials said the closure was due to numbers. The Tigard clinic had lower traffic than its two other locations in Beaverton and Hillsboro since it opened in 2002.
