St. Charles Health System is building a St. Charles Family Care clinic to serve the community of La Pine and nearby underserved communities, including Sunriver, Gilchrist, Crescent, Chiloquin, Chemult, Christmas Valley, Silver Lake and Fort Rock.
St. Charles Foundation is partnering with the community to raise $1.5 million toward the $5 million construction of the facility, scheduled to open in April of 2018.
Currently, many in the region drive 30 miles or more to Bend to see their primary care physician or to receive immediate care. Without access to medical care in the area during evening and weekend hours, even minor injuries or illnesses often result in unnecessary ambulance rides and emergency room visits.
In addition, as La Pine and surrounding communities develop economically, it is essential that there is sufficient access to stable, consistent, quality health care to serve the current population and workforce, as well as attract new businesses and residents.
Along with expanding services, the new St. Charles Family Care clinic in La Pine will provide a medical home for the region that coordinates care throughout St. Charles Health System with the central point of access — your primary care physician — close to home.
