Our 20th Anniversary!

Community Health Centers of Lane County Marks 20 Years of Service to Lane County

Community Health Centers of Lane County (CHCLC) is commemorating 20 years of providing, patient-centered, quality health care services to some of the most vulnerable Lane County community members. The CHCLC began offering health care services to the Eugene/Springfield area on March 1, 2004 at two locations with a small team of  employees. Since then, it has expanded to provide services at 6 clinic locations, with two more opening in 2024, and a dedicated staff of over 200. The clinics provide patient-centered preventative and primary care services, pediatrics, integrated behavioral health, and oral health services to nearly 30,000 individuals in Lane County. Clinic staff include bilingual medical providers, alternative care specialists, nurses, patient care coordinators, access specialists and front desk staff.

“Our CHCLC has provided a medical home to tens of thousands of individuals in Lane County, many of whom would otherwise go without basic healthcare,” said Lane County Health & Human Services Director, Eve Gray. “By expanding access and improving the health of our 30,000 patients, we create a positive input to the overall health and well-being of our entire community.”

CHCLC has grown greatly over the last 20 years, and this is not the end. This year the CHCLC will open its first walk-in clinic in West Eugene, and its first ever rural clinic in Cottage Grove. Our pediatric department has increased capacity and is working with local partners to streamline access to services for children that are looking to establish pediatric care.
