Did you know about these free Waterfall services?

Waterfall is committed to helping our community take control of their health, and that is no different for Heart Health month!

Veggie Rx:

Eating right is one of the most important factors in your overall health, and our Veggie Rx program is here to serve that purpose.

This program is open to all patients free of charge, and patients can come by once a week to get a bag of produce.

Blood Pressure Checks:

Maintaining a healthy blood pressure is extremely important for the health of your heart. Waterfall offers free blood pressure checks. This is a great place to start if you aren’t sure what steps you should take for your health and wellness.

Abby Blake EOTM New

February Employee of the Month

Please join us in congratulating Abby Blake as our February Employee of the Month.  

Since Abby has arrived, she has brought stability, structure and leadership to multiple areas that had fallen by the wayside. She quickly got us in compliance and organized in areas that were desperately needed. Abby's colleagues describe her as being the eyes and ears of the clinic that catches small glitches before they become big glitches. Abby is also known for her calm, professional demeanor and finding answers quickly and following through with communicating them to others.  

Thanks, Abby, for all you do!

Marce Knight

Board Member Highlight!

Marce Knight was invited to join the Waterfall Board of Directors in 1998 by our first CEO, Kathy Laird. She currently serves as the Board Vice President. 

She graduated from Marshfield High School, received her associate degree from Southwestern Oregon Community College, and her Bachelor of Arts from Linfield University, McMinnville, Oregon. Marce’s background was in healthcare, and she is now retired. 

Serving on the Board of Directors has been a rewarding experience, in seeing the growth in the programs now offered in multiple locations, and to see Waterfall become a vital part of the health care community.

Diversity

Waterfall's Diversity and Equity Statement

Waterfall Community Health Center’s mission is to promote access to quality integrated health services that meet the needs of individuals with barriers to care on the Southern Oregon Coast. We believe all individuals should be cared for with respect and dignity while recognizing that racism and discrimination within the US healthcare system are complex barriers to equitable treatment. 

Waterfall embraces a broad definition of diversity, including the recognition that diversity is not limited to gender, race, and ethnicity, but must also include age, socioeconomic status, sexual orientation, gender identity, religious commitment, physical ability and other varied backgrounds and life experiences. We respect and affirm the unique identities of every community member in Coos and Curry Counties.

Waterfall fosters inclusion by extending an invitation to those who have not historically been at the decision-making table and by ensuring that all voices are heard, respected, and valued. We practice equity by considering patients’ individual circumstances when providing care and by valuing staff member’s strengths and intersecting identities.

Waterfall Community Health Center denounces discrimination for any and all reasons. Our role is to provide quality care to all individuals in every community on Oregon’s Southern Coast. In the effort to seek health equity in the care we provide, Waterfall is committed to humility, continued learning, and increasing efforts to create and sustain an inclusive and equitable environment to both provide and receive care. 

The Waterfall Clinic

We are a safety-net clinic in North Bend / Coos Bay serving the people of Coos, Curry and Douglas counties on the Southern Oregon Coast. We accept patients with Medicare, Oregon Health Plan/Medicaid, Private Insurance and patients without health insurance. We have a sliding fee scale for patients without health insurance, which is based on family size and income. The Waterfall Community Health Center is a Patient Centered Medical Home.

Waterfall Community Health Center is a Federal Tort Claims Act (FTCA) deemed health center, whereby it has medical malpractice liability protection through the FTCA. Under this Act, Federally-Qualified Health Centers, like Waterfall Clinic, are considered Federal employees with the Federal government acting as their primary insurer.
