National College of Natural Medicine, Portland, Oregon, has opened a new clinic in Beaverton. The new clinic is the medical college’s second natural medicine teaching clinic and the first located in the Portland suburban area. The new NCNM Beaverton Clinic will hold a public open house on October 18, 2014, from 1 PM to 5 PM.
The 1760 square–foot clinic will offer naturopathic medicine from licensed primary care physicians at affordable rates well below the market average. The clinic expects to offer Chinese medicine to patients in January 2015 and is credentialed by Oregon Health Plan’s Open Card and CareOregon as well as several commercial insurance carriers.
The new clinic replaces a temporary clinic space at Beaverton’s Elsie Stuhr Center where NCNM offered low-cost healthcare services for uninsured and underserved patients. The transition to the new clinic will allow the college’s bilingual staff and licensed medical practitioners to see patients in a fully appointed medical facility and expand their ability to see others in the Beaverton community who want to experience natural medicine. The launch of the Beaverton Clinic marks the first time that the college has expanded its footprint into the suburbs. NCNM Clinic, established in 2009 and located on the college’s campus, is the school’s main clinic.
The Beaverton clinic offers a wide range of services and hours, a number of low-cost payment options (including financial assistance for those in need), lab services, and a dispensary for highly discounted herbal medicine. The clinic’s naturopathic physicians are licensed in Oregon to prescribe and review pharmaceutical medications in addition to herbal medications.
