Estacada School District – School and Community Based Health Care

Orchid Health Wade Creek Clinic
Orchid Health offers comprehensive primary, preventative and same-day care services to all
ages in a respectful and compassionate manner. Orchid accepts nearly all insurance plans, and their experienced medical team is here to help you stay healthy, pursue your health goals, and assist in times of urgent need.

Student Pricing
Orchid Health is a School Based Health Center. This means that no student in the Estacada
School District will be turned away due to ability to pay. Orchid welcomes ALL students, and accepts most insurance including the Oregon Health Plan. If you don’t have insurance, don’t worry – Orchid will still see you.

Students between the ages of 12 and 19 who visit the SBHC may be asked to complete an
anonymous survey after their visit. The survey asks about the student’s satisfaction and
experience at the SBHC, as well as some general questions about their physical and mental
health status. Students can refuse to take the survey and this will not affect their ability to get
care at the SBHC. To see a copy of the survey, please go to the “SBHC Data Requirements”
link from If you have questions about the survey, please contact
the SBHC State Program Office at [email protected].

Details on the Orchid care team below as well as on their website:

Lynn Murphy, MD
Dr. Lynn Murphy was raised in Portland, Oregon, and now she has returned home to be near
family and friends. During her years away, she worked for many years as a volunteer with inner-city children in Philadelphia. She then achieved her Medical Degree through Temple University
before returning to the West Coast. After a California Residency at UCSF, she practiced as the
only doctor in a small town near the San Francisco Area, successfully operating her own private
office for the last 14 years.

For personal and family health reasons, Dr. Murphy’s family took up residence in Hawaii in 2015.
She now shares time between the two states: Oregon and Hawaii. As a physician, Dr. Murphy
relishes practicing “Whole Person Medicine”, thrives in an environment where she can spend
quality time with her patients, and is also an excellent diagnostician who is willing to embrace
high quality medical standards while still inviting natural health care into the picture. She loves a
small town environment and is excited to have joined the team at Orchid Health in Estacada.
When not working you might often find her kayaking on the ocean or possibly Stand Up Paddle-
boarding. She also spends a lot of time as a homeschooling parent, a chef for her allergy-ridden
son, writing or playing music, and running a successful homespun jewelry business.

Laura Montez, PA-C
Laura grew up in Phoenix, AZ where she earned her undergraduate degree at University of
Arizona. After two years in the Peace Corps in the Central Pacific, she moved to Oregon where
she obtained her Master's at Pacific University's School of Physician Assistant Studies. She has worked in the areas of Pediatrics, Family Practice and Urgent Care in East County for the past 13 years.

For the past few years, she has lived in Estacada, where she is very excited about providing
quality rural health to her community. When she is not working, she is involved with her kids, volunteers at Estacada Fire Department and cycles long distance. She is fluent
in Spanish, American Sign Language and Gilbertese, and is always eager to learn more

Andrew White, PA-C
Andrew grew up in rural, Holmes County, Ohio, home to the world’s largest Amish population.
He did most of his undergraduate training at The Ohio State University. He and his wife moved
to the Portland area where he ultimately earned his bachelor’s from the University of Western
States. He then completed his formal education at Pacific University where he earned his
master’s degree in Physician Assistant Studies.

He enjoys the broad scope of family medicine and is looking forward to returning to a rural
community to practice. Having studied chiropractic medicine for a number of years prior to PA school, Andrew has an interest in the roles that diet and lifestyle play in our overall health. He
also has a special interest in dermatologic conditions and end-of-life care.

Andrew and his wife moved to the Pacific Northwest in 2010 and, along with their three children,
now consider it home. They enjoy being involved in their local church and can often be found
hiking, backpacking and doing other outdoor activities. On more leisurely days he can also be
found playing keyboard and enjoying the local food and coffee culture.

Her passion is finding what makes each individual function optimally and working with them to
develop strategies to maintain their optimum balance. Outside of work Laura enjoys running,
