Orion Falvey, Executive Director and co-founder of Orchid Health has received the 2023 University of Oregon’s UOAA Outstanding Young Alumni Award.

This award honors outstanding professional achievement and personal dedication to the community before the recipient’s 41st birthday. Falvey’s contributions to the field of healthcare earned him this recognition.

The award has been presented to only 29 Oregon alumni, including US Senator Ron Wyden and renowned journalist Ann Curry. Falvey’s selection by the UOAA Board of Directors’ Awards Committee marks him as the 30th recipient of this prestigious award.

Falvey co-founded Orchid Health as a student at the University of Oregon after learning how rural communities lacked access to quality health care. Since then, Orchid has grown from a single clinic in Oakridge to a network of clinics providing quality, local health care for over 6,600 patients in five rural Oregon communities.

Falvey’s healthcare journey has garnered widespread recognition. In 2020, he was named the Rural Health Hero of the Year by The Oregon Office of Rural Health, and in 2022 he received the Healthcare of the Future Leadership Award from the Portland Business Journal

Falvey was honored during the Class of 2013-2014 10th reunion, where University President Karl Scholz officially presented the award.

Looking forward to warmer days? The Lane County Chapter of Oregon Small Woodlands Association will host its Annual Seedling & Native Plant Sale on Saturday, February 3rd, at Alton Baker Park. Hours are 8 to 11 or until sold out (please arrive early to receive a number for entrance – sales are on a first-come, first-served basis).

While waiting to enter the pavilion, Oregon Dept. of Forestry representative, Dan Menk, Stewardship Forester with Oregon Department of Forestry, and Lauren Grand, OSU Extension Forester, will be on hand to answer questions. Once the sale begins, folks will be asked to enter as numbers are called.
