Welches, OR – [May 28, 2024] – Orchid Health is excited to announce the upcoming opening of its new clinic at the Hoodland Clinic in Welches, set to begin operations in mid-October. This expansion reflects Orchid Health’s commitment to giving rural communities access to comprehensive primary care for everybody at every age.

Orchid Health has been recognized for its exceptional patient-centered approach, earning a 5-star Patient-Centered Primary Care Home (PCPCH) rating - the highest possible rating in Oregon. Additionally, the organization was voted Business of the Year and has been named one of the Best Places to Work and Healthiest Workplaces in Oregon.

"Our goal is to make high-quality healthcare accessible to everyone, and we look forward to serving the residents of Welches with the same dedication and excellence that we provide in our other locations,” said Orion Falvey, Executive Director and Co-founder of Orchid Health. 

Falvey also noted that “when Orchid decides to bring services to a community, we are here to stay”, having grown up in a small town in Alaska with a deep understanding of the importance of lasting community relationships. This has been made evident by Orchid’s ongoing commitment and service to the McKenzie River community even after their clinic was burned down during the 2020 wildfires. 

As part of our growth, we will be hiring for various positions in the area to support the new clinic. With its positive regional reputation, Orchid has already received interest from several primary care providers who would like to work at the clinic.
