The Health Centers of UWS – East Portland clinic moved to 12615 NE Halsey Street, a location newly purchased by University of Western States. The transition to the new location took place in early January 2017 after the completion of minor interior and exterior improvements.
The new clinic site provides an improved environment for patient care, access and parking. The new facility is a prominent, free-standing building that will provide better overall visibility, more functional space including easier vehicle entrance and exit on NE Halsey St. and NE 126th St., more parking and reduced noise from exterior sources.
The East Portland clinic is one of four health clinics within the Health Centers of UWS network and provides health care services to members of the surrounding communities. Patient care is provided by Dr. Franchesca Vermillion, a chiropractic physician, and Dr. Daniel DeLapp, a chiropractic physician who is also a naturopathic physician and licensed acupuncturist. The facility also offers massage therapy services provided by licensed massage therapists Fran Rodriquez and Skylar Harris. The clinic serves the university as a training environment for advanced students in the institution’s Doctor of Chiropractic and Massage Therapy programs.
