History of Occupy Medical

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 offer care in the “healthcare as a human right” model. We are providing an example to our community of the impact of offering Universal Healthcare looks like in practice. To this end, we are also filling the need for access to medical care by offering a free medical clinic to all throughout Lane County, and assisting other communities in creating their own Clinic program.

In 2012, we were awarded a grant from Oregon Community Foundation to pay for a former blood mobile which we refitted into a mobile clinic. We started serving patients every Sunday at the Park Blocks in downtown Eugene, Oregon. Our team of volunteers grew as word of a free clinic expanded. By 2015, we were offering integrated healthcare to 40-60 patients and giving free food and hygiene supplies to between 200-300 visitors.


Occupy Medical Demonstration Clinic held in Roseburg with the group Feed the Burg providing a massive free buffet for all in December of 2017

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 sold the building and we at OM are worked hard to find a new building. In the mean time, we made due by serving medicine out of our bus at Washington Jefferson Park.

In June of 2018, we worked with a group of University of Oregon graduate students to get a grant from the Faye and Lucille Stewart Foundation. This allowed us to lease a building at 1717 Centennial Blvd. suites 4 & 7 in Springfield, Oregon. Visit us there to join us in our commitment to honoring Healthcare as a Human Right!
