Why Eugene?

When we have equal access to care, we can make empowered choices.

We can plan our futures, take care of our families, and get the support we need to achieve what we want. For too long, healthcare services have been carried out with little say from the people it serves, without consideration to our practical, emotional or cultural needs.

We started Eugene to create a kinder, gentler and more affordable approach to health — to build the kind of healthcare service that we’d want for ourselves and our loved ones.
