The Tribe operates the Jamestown Family Health Clinic in the City of Sequim to provide primary health care services to Tribal citizens and non tribal community members seeking quality care. Tribal citizens are the priority population for services and are encouraged to receive services through the Clinic.

Preventive care for all ages: newborns, children adolescents and adults
Geriatric care: including care in nursing homes or assisted living settings

The Clinic is affiliated with the University of Washington’s Department of Family Medicine. The clinic serves as a rural training center for physicians from the University’s Family Medicine Residency Program. They help maintain the quality of care that the clinic staff and physicians provide in Sequim. Participation in the teaching program provides the staff with a satisfying teaching role. It also provides ongoing educational opportunities and on-line resources invaluable to the medical practice.
The Jamestown Family Dental Clinic is open to patients of all ages. With an incredible view of Sequim Bay, the office is located in Blyn, in the lower level of the Tribal Community Center Building. We serve Tribal citizens, Tribal employees and members of the local community who seek quality dental care.
Two dentists are joined by a staff of 5 assistants and 2 hygienists. The experience and training of the three dentists make possible a wide array of dental services, from basic care (cleaning, X-rays, fillings) to a variety of dental procedures including, endodontics (root canals), prosthodontics (crowns, bridges, partials and dentures), oral surgery including implants.
Community Health & Wellness for Tribal Citizens
Health Education and Prevention services are provided by the Community Health Staff who include a Community Health Nurse (CHN), a Community Health Representative (CHR) and a Health Educator. Together they provide and coordinate a number of health services that include health screenings, infectious disease education and prevention, chronic disease management, safety education and planning, and injury prevention.
Top priority wellness issues include increasing healthy eating habits, increasing physical activity and decreasing tobacco use. Community Health staff design Tribal programs to address these issues and to provide support for citizens working to improve their health. Health interactions may be provided on an individual basis or in a group event and occur in a variety of settings such including the Tribal Community Center, Tribal Health offices, the Jamestown Family Health Clinic, or during a visit to the home of a Tribal citizen.
