Celebrate the new-look Beavercreek Health Clinic Aug. 13

For the first time in its history, the Beavercreek Health Clinic has received a significant makeover.

Now, it’s time to celebrate. Clackamas County staff members, county commissioners, elected officials and others will be on hand at the clinic from 1-3 p.m. on Thursday, Aug. 13, to celebrate the completion of the remodel. Attendees can also take a tour of nearby Hilltop Behavioral Health Clinic, which was remodeled in 2012.

The public is invited to this event. The Beavercreek clinic is located at 1425 Beavercreek Road in Oregon City,

"We are really looking forward to this event," said Scott Anderson, a spokesperson for Clackamas County’s Health, Housing and Human Services department. "A lot of work has gone into this project by staff members and we’re excited to show the public how great the clinic looks and how we can help county residents with their medical, dental and behavioral health needs."

The building, opened in 1962, has served thousands of county patients throughout the years. After more than 50 years of use, Clackamas County was awarded a Health Resources and Service Administration (HRSA) grant and a Community Development grant, supplemented with other funds to renovate the patient waiting and check-in area.

Construction kicked off in early May. Later that month, approximately 80 percent of the clinic was fully functioning. By June, four clinic restrooms were converted to become compliant with the Americans with Disabilities Act, and a waiting area was converted to an in-house pharmacy. Additionally, the remodel added a resource area for patients. They now have access to MyChart – a patient access portal.

"This remodel combines patient check-in for medical and dental," Deborah Cockrell, director of the county’s health clinics said. "It has streamlined the check-in process and allows for better customer service and patient confidentiality."

Along with expanding the exterior staff entrance with 65 square feet of additional office space, the new lobby/waiting room now has a computer area, information center and children’s area. This new waiting room will provide fun activities for kids and less stress for parents.

"The addition of these self-management materials and community resources will ultimately help patients increase their knowledge of their health," Cockrell said.
