Staff and council members cut the ribbon for the newly remodeled North Portland Health Center in 2018.

The Community Health Center Board (CHCB) is a patient majority board that governs Multnomah County Health Department's community health center. This includes all of the primary care clinics, dental clinics, student health centers, pharmacies, and specialty clinics within the Community Health Center program.

The board works closely with the community health center executive director and senior leadership team to provide oversight, direction, policy development, strategic planning and budget planning for the health center.


Meetings are open to the public, and are normally held on the second Monday of each month from 6-8pm. Currently, we meet virtually via Zoom, due to the pandemic.
