LaPine had its own medical clinic and Deschtues County had its behavioral health clinic nearby.

 

Dr. Michelle Cox with Deschutes County Behavioral Health says all care is moving in this direction -- consolidating healthcare.

 

"In essence, LaPine had its own medical center and all the behavioral health was in a facility by the county half a mile down the road.  When you're trying to help people get healthy, especially in rural areas, it helps people. We can communicate as providers much more easily."

 

Deschutes County hopes to expand the medical and mental health clinics to Sisters and Redmond.
