Welcome to the Portland Area of the Indian Health Service

The Portland Area IHS provides health care for an estimated 150,000 American Indian and Alaska Native residents of Oregon, Washington and Idaho. Health delivery services are provided by a mix of health centers, health stations, preventative health programs and Urban Indian Programs.

The Portland Area encompasses a rich and diverse Native culture and meets the needs of a population that requires an equally diverse health care system. Direct service health centers operated by a combination of Tribal facilities, Urban Indian organizations and Area IHS facilities, ensure comprehensive, coordinated care delivery to more than 40 Tribes in the Pacific Northwest.

The Portland Area operates six federal health facilities in five Tribal communities and one at Chemawa Indian School in Salem, OR. There are also three Urban Indian Programs, which offer services ranging from community health to comprehensive primary health care. Overall, Tribes administer more than 74 percent of the IHS Portland Area budget authority appropriation.

In an effort to combat the rising trend of health disparities in the Portland Area, Indian health facilities there place extensive emphasis on improving health outcomes, particularly in the areas of infant health, high-risk maternal and child health, tobacco use intervention, domestic violence, diabetes care, women’s health care and cancer screenings.

In addition, the Northwest Portland Area Indian Health Board works closely with the Portland Area, operating a variety of health-related programs on behalf of their member Tribes, including the Northwest Tribal Epidemiology Center.
