We're Expanding!

Waterfall Community Health Center is expanding our Mental Health services. We will be opening a location at the new Coos Bay Village!

"The community has been correct in assuming that there aren't enough mental health services in Coos County, so Waterfall has been adding more and more clinicians, mental health therapists, psychiatrists, people who can prescribe medications, and we've run out of room," says Lance Nelson, CIO of Waterfall Community Health Center.
