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.

Community Health In Motion Fund

The aim of Community Health in Motion is to help serve the health needs of Clackamas County’s most poor and vulnerable residents, from children in financial need to frail older people. Community Health in Motion provides thousands of free immunizations for children who are at risk of being excluded from school because they haven’t received the required immunizations. It also provides hundreds of free sports physicals for children whose parents can’t afford the required exams. As well, the program has offered basic health screenings for adults, fall prevention clinics for seniors and community health fairs.

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.
