Occupy Medical is a 100% volunteer, 501(c)3 organization of dedicated healthcare professionals and support personnel who believe healthcare is a basic human right that must be made accessible to everyone, regardless of ability to pay.
Visit us at our Sunday clinic on W 5th Ave & Washington St, from noon till 4pm. Please come early and get your name on the list between 11:50 and 1pm to assure your spot on the bus. We stop taking patients at 3pm.
Since the first Occupy Eugene encampment, Occupy Medical has evolved from a loosely knit association of volunteers providing first aid in the camps, into a cohesive team of primary care practitioners delivering no cost, high quality medical services to the Eugene-Springfield community.
Our goal is to fill the need for access to medical care by offering a free medical clinic to all in need throughout Lane County, and assisting other communities in creating their own Clinic program.
We believe the most effective initial means to reach those who need help is to create a mobile medical clinic that provides primary care in the towns and cities where the need exists, at a convenient time, and manner appropriate for the populations served.
Later, if the need is large enough, finding a building makes the job easier, and allows for a higher level of care.
For part of 2016, and most of 2017, we used our bus as an herbal medicine office parked in front of the building at 13th and Ferry St, and also for demonstration clinics in other cities.
October 15th, 2017 was our final day at the 13th and Ferry St location. White Bird graciously offered their building to us for a year, but is selling the building now, and we at OM are working hard to find a new building.
We welcome any and all ideas for sharing, borrowing, or finding some wonderful individual or group willing to donate a building. Our dream building would be close to downtown, wheelchair accessible, and about 4,000 to 8,000 sqft.
