With all of the new technology businesses opening up in the Prineville area, it's only natural that a new, bigger  and better hospital is needed.

 

Bob Gomes, CEO of Pioneer Memorial Hospital says they have narrowed down locations to two areas in Prineville: Iron Horse and Ochoco Lumber; and they are excited to move forward.

 

"I think it's an exciting time to think about the future of healthcare and where we're going as a nation. And a new facility lets us adapt to where we're going, so, something that we could look forward to for the next 50+ years. And I’m personally excited about it because both have come together at one time. So we're not just building a replacement hospital, we're trying to say "where's healthcare going?" and what are the needs of the community for healthcare in the future."

 

Gomes says it could be April when all decision makers get together to approve the next phase of the project and funding.
