The International Medicine Clinic at Harborview provides adult refugees and immigrants ages 16 and older with the highest quality of primary care services. Non- and limited-English speaking adults receive care with the assistance of staff who speak the languages most commonly encountered in the clinic: Amharic, Cambodia, Cantonese, Chao Jo, Mandarin, Hmong, Laotian, Mien, Oromo, Somali, Tigrinya and Vietnamese.
Interpreter services are also available. Since many clinic patients are accustomed to non-Western healing traditions, acupuncture and massage are available, and providers often collaborate with community healers. Our Community House Calls program works with members of the refugee and immigrant communities to visit patients at home and make follow-up visits. The clinic also collaborates with other community health agencies on important public health projects, such as
