Who We Are

OPCA is a non-profit membership association, founded in 1984.

Our members are Oregon's 32 community health centers - aka Federally Qualified Health Centers, or FQHCs - and those who support them. 


Our Vision

Health equity for all Oregonians.

Our Mission

Lead the transformation of primary care to achieve health equity for all.

How do we help you keep your patients healthy? We provide our members and partners with training and technical assistance.  We share the latest ideas, expert advice and proven techniques for keeping patients healthy.  
How do we promote public policies that help you thrive? We educate policymakers about the need for accessible, high-quality primary care for low-income and other vulnerable Oregonians.  
What have we done for you lately? Our latest progress report features highlights of our work from January - September 2014. Our strategic goals for 2015 focus on helping health centers provide timely access to health care for vulnerable Oregonians and value to their communities, improve metrics and become leaders in addressing the social determinants of health.
