The Farm Clinic Outreach Program was first envisioned by Dr. Gabriel Ledger of Mary’s Peak Emergency Room Physicians at Good Samaritan Hospital in Corvallis and Lisa Quick, the Community Outreach Inc. Health Services Director. The Farm Clinic Outreach Program brings preventative and acute medical care to temporary rural clinic locations throughout Benton County for individuals facing barriers to healthcare.
The Farm Clinics are overseen by COI staff. We partner with volunteer doctors, nurses, translators, farmers, and local businesses to provide this essential service. The clinics are provided monthly and serve on average 12 patients per clinic. Many of the new patients to the Farm Clinic have not received professional medical care for decade.
Who We Serve
We work with local farmers to schedule appointment for each individual as well as scheduling follow-up visits/communicate test results in order to ensure that patient medical needs are met.
Patients range in age from 18-50 years old. Approximately 50% of patients seen at each clinic are in need of more than one-time service. The medical needs we see most often are overuse injuries, muculoskeletal injuries, upper respiratory infections, allergies, and chiropractic needs. In addition, we provide flu vaccination clinics whenever possible.
