April Employee of the Month

Please join us in congratulating Heather Malcomb as our April Employee of the Month!  

Heather has been with us since August of 2021 and has been serving our patients with her compassionate demeanor and positive attitude from day one. She is known for her smile and sense of humor and is a key member of our social health team. The providers who have had the pleasure of working with her often remark how she represents the "engine" that makes the integrated model work with her teams. One of her co-workers states, "Heather has a heart of gold and never hesitates to go out of her way to help, even when it's not her job." 

Thanks, Heather for your excellent care and compassion and daily demonstrating how our integrated model can be life changing for our patients.

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.
