Ko-Kwel Wellness Center–Eugene
The Ko-Kwel Wellness Center-Eugene serves all American Indians and Alaska Natives from federally recognized tribes, with proof of tribal enrollment or tribal identity.
Family members of American Indians and Alaska Natives may be accepted in the future, as capacity allows.
The Eugene clinic provides primary medical care as well as blood draws for laboratory testing.
Though our Eugene location isn’t a full-service laboratory, we offer point-of-care testing such as rapid-strep and rapid-flu, as recommended by your health-care provider.

Meet our healthcare provider
Dr. Keerti Jaini, Medical Director
Our medical director fills multiple roles in the community. At Ko-Kwel Wellness Center, she cares for patients and supervises our other primary-care providers. She also practices internal medicine North Bend Medical Center and cares for patients who’ve been admitted to Bay Area Hospital in Coos Bay.
Dr. Jaini provides care to patients at both the Eugene and Coos Bay KWC locations.
Dr. Jaini was born and raised in India, earning her medical degree at Kakatiya Medical College. She completed her internal medicine residency at New Jersey’s Monmouth Medical Center. She has special interests in endocrinology and geriatric medicine.
Though she was raised and educated on the far side of the planet, Dr. Jaini feels at home in a tribal medical clinic. She shares KWC’s philosophy of treating the whole patient rather than just the disease. And she says Native Americans share many cultural values with the people of her homeland, including reverence for Elders.
