WFMC Health

3.9/5 based on 101 Reviews Write a Review

In 1995, three doctors came together and founded Willamette Family Medical Center (now WFMC Health). They created WFMC Health with the goal to serve unmet needs of uninsured/underinsured residents of Marion-Polk counties. Now, we work as a non-profit 501(c)(3) medical clinic. Above all, we promise that no patient is denied care based on being unable to pay.

Since the beginning, WFMC Health continues to grow. We are friendly, genuine and compassionate. As a result, our staff of over 50 has cared for more than 30,000 patients. You can count on our doctors and staff to listen, offer real advice, and give great care to every patient.

We pride ourselves in offering the highest quality health care. You’ll find a team of supportive professionals who are here to help you. We offer a broad range of family health care services in one welcoming space.

The Oregon Health Authority has designated WFMC Health as a Tier 5 Patient-Centered Medical Home. We have also been certified as a Providence Medical Home by Providence Health Plans. This recognition means we are highly qualified to offer comprehensive health care that meets your needs.

Our skilled team strives to make it easy for you and your family to thrive. We’re the one-stop location for all of your medical needs. Come to us for medical and maternity visits, lab work, therapy, care management, community resources, and more.

5 Star Review By Diane M.

I’ve been a patient at WFMC for years. I went in this week for my second booster shot. I felt cared for and safe from the first smile to the person giving me the injection.
