It started with a single physician volunteering his time and carrying his medical supplies in a tackle box as he provided care to homeless patients in Portland. Those early actions taken by a selfless doctor named Jim Reuler sparked The Wallace Medical Concern.
Today, WMC is a Federally Qualified Health Center with multiple locations that provides primary care and urgent health care to patients in need. Services are provided at morning and evening clinics, as well as three-days-per-week on the Mobile Medical Clinic where patients can be seen and cared for by a physician right in their own neighborhood.
Key medical services currently offered by WMC include: • Basic health care for all ages • Well baby and well child visits/immunizations • Urgent care several evenings a week • Chronic disease management • Dermatology, podiatry and chiropractic care
