Central Oregon needs more family practice physicians and St. Charles Health System is trying to fill that need. The hospital will open two new primary care clinics in Bend and Sisters this summer and fall. Dr. Steven Greer, who is currently working in Alaska, has worked at St. Charles before. He's looking forward to returning.
“It's a great opportunity for Central Oregon to provide more services, specifically primary care services. It will complement what's currently in Central Oregon. St. Charles is looking to complement what's already here, not really trying to replace anything that's there.” The Sisters clinic will open mid summer and the Bend clinic will open in the fall.
