Offers improved access for children in the region
COPA opens a new clinic on the south side of Bend within the existing St. Charles Medical Group (SCMG) location at 61250 SE Coombs Place in south Bend. This is a unique relationship for both organizations where COPA will lease space within the St. Charles Family Care Bend South clinic and provide a full medical team and reception to care for COPA patients. St Charles Family Group recently announced they are no longer providing pediatrics and instead have partnered with COPA as the largest provider of healthcare to children in the region.
This development occurred after COPA and St Charles met in fall 2017 to collaborate on how to improve medical outcomes and the quality of healthcare for children throughout the region.
“Medical outcomes for our patients consistently exceed regional and state benchmarks and it’s important that we provide this kind of exceptional care to more children throughout Central Oregon,” said Wade Miller, chief executive officer of COPA.
According to Miller, COPA is working with specialists and other medical providers in the region to ensure Central Oregon children have a strong foundation of care for a lifetime of health.
New patients may enroll immediately with COPA and request to be see in the new location south of town. Call 541.389.6313 or learn more at www.copakids.com
