Wellness: Our vision and our mission

The Ko-Kwel Wellness Centers in Coos Bay and Eugene emphasize providing a welcoming, healing environment for underserved communities. Bringing wellness services to indigenous patients is our primary mission.

Coos Bay – We like to say that Coos Bay’s Ko-Kwel Wellness Center is the heart of our community. It stands in the center of Kilkich, our modern-day village on Cape Arago. Its design and philosophy honor our indigenous heritage.

Our Kilkich clinic is open to Coquille Tribal families, other American Indians and Alaska Natives, tribal employees, and the general public as capacity allows. 

Eugene – Sharing the same philosophy, the Ko-Kwel Wellness Center-Eugene serves indigenous people from federally recognized tribes. (Sorry, but our Eugene clinic cannot accommodate non-Native patients at this time.)

Both Ko-Kwel Wellness Centers emphasize trauma-informed care and the comfort of cultural connection.

Mission statement

We foster and promote a “whole person” approach to wellness, health and self-sufficiency, in a safe, traditional and culturally meaningful environment, to ensure the legacy of the Coquille Indian People. We serve Coquille Tribal family members; American Indians and Alaska Natives; employees of the Coquille Indian Tribe and its subsidiary entities; and the general public.
