St Charles in Bend is opening its Family Care Clinic on Wednesday here in Bend. The center will institute a different approach. The clinic located on Conners Avenue near the hospital, will employ six family practice physicians, along with a psychologist. Jim Diegel, the CEO of St. Charles Healthcare System says it's a different approach to primary care. “We're actually embedding a psychologist in our primary clinic. One of our physicians told us recently 40% of his patients have a behavioral or mental health need.” St. Charles has family care clinics in Prineville , Sisters , Redmond and Bend.
