Our Story.

Orchid Health was founded with the mission of solving the problems and inefficiencies of modern American healthcare, and to make sure that no patient or community lacked access due to the current system. Our founders, Orion Falvey and Oliver Alexander spent years working with a number of Oregon’s top healthcare policy leaders, primary care providers, and most importantly community members themselves in order to improve the health and well-being of all patients and to create a model of health care based on quality, compassion, and innovation.

Our Model.

Exceptional Patient Experience

Our goal is for our patients to feel listened to, have enough time to ask necessary questions, and be able to discuss what’s most important to them with their provider. In order to accomplish this we offer hour long initial visits and 30 minute follow up visits. Additionally we understand the need for accessible primary and urgent care when a health concern arises, which is why we offer same-day visits (by appointment) and expedited new patient visits. In order to continuously improve the experience our patients receive, we constantly ask for feedback and involve patients in our decision making process.



Orchid Health is proud to accept most major health insurance plans, including the Oregon Health Plan and most Medicare plans.

Call us today to see if you're covered!



At Orchid, we believe you deserve quality healthcare, no matter what. Anyone can be an Orchid patient, whether or not you have insurance. We have many flexible options available to make our care accessible.
