PRINEVILLE, OR -- A Prineville woman wants to see the former Pioneer Memorial Hospital turned into a veterans clinic. Kim Kambak has talked with local commissioners and U.S. senators about turning the facility into a VA clinic after the new St. Charles Prineville Hospital is completed later this year.

 

"There was an agreement with St. Charles that there will be a non-compete with the new hospital," Kambak says. "I think people didn't consider that we would use it for this; they just assumed it would be utilized for something else. I'm just hoping since it's set up as a medical building and since veterans have to travel for medical and mental health care, we could utilize it."

 

Kimbak says that Crook County Commissioner Ken Fahlgren and Senator Ron Wyden both expressed interest in looking into whether the facility could be converted into a veterans hospital.
