5:05 PM · Mar 19, 2024

ROSEBURG, Ore. – Umpqua Community College students will have on-site access to basic primary medical care services beginning Monday, April 1, at 10 a.m., when Aviva Health begins offering care on campus from one of its mobile medical units. Named the Hawk Health Center, the mobile medical unit will be stationed outside the Health Nursing and Science Center between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. the first Monday of each month. “We’re excited to bring mobile medical services to the UCC campus,” says Lauren Haddock, MDA, RDN, LD, Aviva Health’s vice president of clinical operations. “There’s great potential for the partnership between Aviva Health and UCC, including the possibility of a permanent health center on the campus.” Collaborative efforts between the two institutions are also focused on healthcare workforce development, an initiative aimed at educating and retaining local learners, addressing the significant demand for qualified healthcare employees in Douglas County. “We are so fortunate to have a caring and energetic partner organization in Aviva Health. Our students will benefit greatly from this service,” commented Dr. Rachel Pokrandt, president of UCC. Patients will have access to traditional primary care services, like annual check-ups, preventive healthcare, referrals to specialists, and be offered assistance with applying for OHP. Services are available to current Aviva Health patients and individuals wishing to establish care. OHP and most commercial insurances will be accepted at the mobile clinic. Uninsured patients will be offered care on a sliding fee scale based on their family size and monthly income. Via Aviva Health
