St. Charles, Ochoco Lumber Company, to Host Land Use Open House August 28


In anticipation of the upcoming land use submittals to the city of Prineville, St. Charles Health System and Ochoco Lumber Company invite the public to a land use project open house to see details of the new Prineville health care campus and the Ochoco Mill site.

The open house includes:
•         Artist renderings of the health care facility
•         The master plan for the site
•         Information on transportation and utility improvements in the area
•         And much more

The land use open house will be from 5-6:30pm at the Prineville City Hall, 387 NE Third St.

St. Charles Health System signed an agreement with Ochoco Lumber Company in May for the purchase of the 20-acre site where the new health care campus will be constructed. As part of the agreement, St. Charles is responsible for some off-site infrastructure, as well as the costs associated with rezoning the property and developing a master plan.

The health care campus will feature a primary care and specialty care physician clinic, Emergency Department, imaging and laboratory services, two surgical suites, 12 inpatient beds, a retail pharmacy and more.

Construction of the $30 million project will likely begin in the first quarter of 2014 and will take about eighteen months to complete.
