The Health District’s need to grow:
The District was formed in 2005, but it took 2 years to find a provider willing to move here to open it. We have gone from a patient base of 200 to approximately 700 and service more than 2600 patients yearly. This has been done with one provider and a staff of four. The building we received is substandard and is not holding up well with all of our use. We need a new building!
We Care! Building Campaign
Our We Care Campaign is designed to build a new building on the same site as the current one, with more accessible parking and entry that is not directly into the west wind! This increase space will have the room for two full time providers, part time providers, procedures and urgent care, behavioral health and full dental services.
This will require community, county and state support. The State has already given their support, in the form of a $1,000,000 grant! We will be meeting with the County Commissioners and community members throughout this entire process.
The current building will then be rehabbed to house part time providers and students, physical therapy, meeting and storage space. These needs are something we currently do not have.
Why we need more space:
We are out of space
Staff is crowded
No room to expand current building
We need to add more providers and services
Services we could provide:
Urgent care hours in evenings and weekends
More providers to see more patients
Full time Behavioral Health
Increase hours for better access for pediatric care
Increase telemedicine visits
Increase ability for home visits
Alternative health services
Increased jobs in South Wasco County
Deschutes Rim Clinic Foundation is an independent 501(3)c governmental not-for-profit organization designed to assist medication needs of our clients, capital equipment and the expansion of our services. To date we have received over $10,000 in memorial donations from the community, as well as over $90,000 in pledges and donations toward the new building.
We will gaining access to the developing fiberoptics in the Maupin area, which will give us improved access to other medical facilities around the state where our patients get their care. We will be INTER-connected to medical databases for improved bi-directional access where patients are receiving care.
