The Kalispel Tribe owns and operates more than a dozen businesses and enterprises in and around the Pend Oreille area.

We believe in building a strong community and our economic development opportunites emphasize our commitment to the land and people.

I would like to introduce myself, Dr. Clayton Kersting, I am the new Medical Director of the Camas Center Clinic. I am new to the clinic but not to the area having practiced in Newport for the last 30 years. I look forward to now providing care to the Kalispel Tribe and the surrounding community. The clinic offers care for the whole family with a strong focus on preventative care.

This clinic was constructed to serve the Kalispel people, to help care for the kids and elders, my intention is to stay true to the original intent, to gain and regain the confidence of this community, this clinic is available as your primary option for primary care.

The clinic’s incredible staff is excited to provide care to the Tribe and community, so call to get an appointment to get caught up on your medical care.
