Central Oregon Pediatric Associates sees a majority of Central Oregon children, and so they need to expand.

 

Construction got underway Monday and will run through October.  COPA CEO, Wade Miller says they are doing  many things to accommodate their expanding practice.  “It's really unusual for a pediatric center to have some long hours and to be open 365 days a year.  And the reason we do that is we're children specialists.  If a child needs to be seen, they are going to get the bets care.  If we're closed on weekends these kids will end up in the ER.  If we're going to take care of 85% to 90% of kids need to make a commitment to them.” 

 

During construction,  COPA's other offices on the west side of Bend and in Redmond will be utilized more.  Some of the improvements slated for the eastside office include an improved lobby area  and more room for their electronic health record system.
