It’s seen as a way to save health care costs for Deschutes County. This morning, the ribbon was cut for the County's on-site health clinic.   County Administrator Dave Kanner: “What it really is paying a flat hourly rate for all services rendered; rather than paying a fee for services rendered. So we may be able to see eight patients do eight office visits in this clinic for the same cost we would pay for one office visit at a fee per service provider.” Estimates are the County will save quarter million dollars every year. The County will pay a private health care provider, "Health-Stat" $500,000 a year to operate the clinic. The clinic is only for County employees and their families. It will be open during business hours and they will experiment with being open select hours on Saturday and after normal business hours. The clinic is across the parking lot from the main County Office at 1300 Wall Street.
