The non-profit, community-owned hospital, Sky Lakes Medical Center, in partnership with Oregon’s only public academic health center, Oregon Health & Science University (OHSU), is constructing a four-story building on the Sky Lakes campus in Klamath to support collaboration and innovation in the way health care is delivered. The 88,000-square-foot building on the west side of the Sky Lakes campus will consolidate several Sky Lakes clinics now in separate locations around Klamath Falls, and will include OHSU education and research offices and the new academic headquarters for the OHSU Campus for Rural Health. The partnership in the new building will improve access to health services by putting clinicians, OHSU residents and students in other medical fields together in collaborative teams in a rural setting.
The nearly 100,000 SF medical office and educational building will improve clinical care, provide an ideal venue for training and ultimately enhance the health of the local community overall. A huge thank you to our WALSH team of Mike Sloop, Pete Bruns, Chuck Moore, Sara Schubert, John Hardesty, Mark Barrows and Beverly Culp!
