Clackamas Volunteers in Medicine’s Health Clinic will be relocating to Clackamas Community College after nearly a decade of providing health care services to thousands of residents free of charge.
The Partnership for Community Health & Education capital campaign aims to raise $3 million in order to offer a beautiful new clinic space on campus but will also allow us to expand our capacity, serve more patients and provide a practicum site for CCC students in the Health Sciences Programs.
We are thrilled to have raised $2.4 million so far and will start renovations in February, exactly 10 years since opening our doors in February 2012. We have so many people and foundations to thank for this success, some of whom are listed below. Our campaign will continue through 2022 or until we reach our goal.
Since opening 9 years ago CVIM has been operating out of a converted warehouse. Now, in partnership with Clackamas Community College, CVIM is moving its operations to a new space on campus. This new clinic will continue to offer vital healthcare services, while offering a new workforce development opportunity in the allied health fields to the next generation of healthcare professionals.
Hire a full-time nurse practioner to oversee the workforce development program and cover extended clinic hours.
Expand our patient population. Approximately 2000 Clackamas Community College students qualify for our services.
Improved equipment for our vision clinic.
Partnership for Community Health & Education
Clackamas Community College currently offers career tracks in Nursing, Medical Assistance and Laboratory Technology. The partnership with CVIM will enrich these programs with real world experience and training bringing new opportunities to learn other health care disciplines, including:
