Women and Children's Health Fund

Our goal is take care of mothers and children in our community. New moms and their babies can find education, support and a range of the services they need at a new Mother Baby Postpartum Clinic on the Providence Milwaukie Hospital campus. To help mothers provide the best nutrition for their newborns, the clinic provides lactation consultation, and includes a retail space with products to support breast-feeding and pumping. Also part of our efforts is to implement the food security Screen & Intervene Model in our low-income medical home clinics and the Mother Baby Clinic. Hunger has been identified as a health problem and remains a significant problem in our immediate area.

Dental care in the community

Access to dental care is a primary concern for Clackamas County residents, with many individuals and families unable to afford even basic dental care – which, in turn, can lead to serious health issues. Providence Milwaukie Hospital has made a commitment to improving dental health by donating space for the new Joseph Bernard, Jr., Dental Clinic, which opened July 8, 2013. Operated by Neighborhood Health Center – a federally qualified provider of medical, dental and mental health care services for low income and uninsured patients – the new dental clinic is expected to serve more than 250 patients a month.
