Cowlitz Tribe serves all at growing health clinic
The Cowlitz Tribe of Washington is receiving positive reviews for its health clinic as it undertakes a major expansion.

Last week, the clinic received accreditation from the Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care. The rating demonstrates the clinic's quality of care, manager Steve Kutz, a tribal member, said.

Accreditation came as the clinic added its first full-time doctor and expanded services for non-Indians. The clinic will soon move into a bigger building next door.

About half of the patients come from members of other federally recognized tribes. Kutz said the clinic is the only Indian health facility in southwestern Washington.
