What a team! The Sky Lakes Collaborative Health Center – a joint effort between Sky Lakes Medical Center and Oregon Health & Science University to advance rural health care – is now open. The four-story, 100,000 SF, $50 million project will house the OHSU Campus for Rural Health, the OHSU Cascades East Family Medicine Residency and clinic, and the new Sky Lakes Primary Care Clinic.
With expansive “smart” windows overlooking Upper Klamath Lake and the Cascade Mountains, the building provides stunning views for patients and their families. An airy two-story entryway on the east presents a welcoming environment, and made-in-Oregon furnishings enhance a relaxing atmosphere.
“The partnership of Sky Lakes and OHSU made the Sky Lakes Collaborative Health Center possible, and will help us meet the health care needs of our patients as well as create a stable workforce that will be ready to meet tomorrow’s health care challenges,” said Paul Stewart, Sky Lakes President and Chief Executive Officer. “This building and the philosophy it embraces is an investment in the future of health care.”
Excellent work by all!
