The Clackamas Community Health Council is the governing board of Clackamas Health Centers. In partnership with the Board of County Commissioners, it is responsible for the oversight of clinical operations, health centers policy, and the recruitment of Health Centers leadership staff. The Council consists of community members—patients and non-patients—who have a passion for quality healthcare services and access. The Council represents the needs and interests of Clackamas County's health services and the people who use them.
What We Do?
The Council is responsible for the oversight of a federally funded grant that provides primary medical, dental, and behavioral health services to Clackamas County residents. Volunteering to serve on the Council is an excellent way to help ensure that Clackamas County's services respond to community needs.
