OHSU and Oregon together for health
Communities across Oregon want access to the best health care and health education. OHSU medical professionals, teachers and researchers help by:
- Providing care to underserved people.
- Using the education process to extend the reach of health care.
- Engaging in research vital to public health.
- Ensuring access to the latest medical advances.
- Connecting with other providers so patients can receive care close to home.
OHSU extends its three primary missions — teaching, healing and discovery — to the entire 96,000 square miles of Oregon and beyond.
Partnership in Klamath Falls
The 100,000-square-foot Sky Lakes Collaborative Health Center opened in Klamath Falls in January 2020 to expand rural access to primary care and other services. The $50 million center is a joint project of OHSU and Sky Lakes Medical Center.
It was built to house:
- The headquarters of the OHSU Campus for Rural Health, a program with sites across Oregon that serve students in medicine, nursing, dentistry and other fields.
- The OHSU Cascades East Family Medicine Residency and clinic, a program that trains doctors in family medicine
- The Sky Lakes Primary Care Clinic, bringing several locations under one roof.
