That is changing thanks to a team effort between St. Charles and Bend Memorial Clinic.

 

The two health facilities paired up to expand vascualr services in central Oregon.

 

Karen Doolan is the Director of Heart Services at St. Charles.

 

"It means that patients with vascular problems like peripheral vascular disease in your leg or porblems with your carotid artery, you can get state of the art treatment that in the past they had to to do to Seattle or Portland for that kind of treatment."

 

St. Charles is building a new state of the art hybrid operating room where a lot of these procedures will be performed.

 

It should be done by early next year.
