Mosaic Medical held a ceremonial ribbon-cutting Monday morning for the opening of the Connors Health Center in Bend.
The new facility at 2065 NE Tucson Way will start accepting patients in person on Monday, Nov. 8.
It replaces another clinic across the street.
The retail pharmacy will be available to the community later in the month, which will offer medication at a discounted rate through Mosaic’s participation in the federal 340B medication assistance program.
“We are very proud and excited to be able to continue to provide excellent primary care to our Bend patients at our new location,” said Megan Haase, FNP and CEO of Mosaic Medical. “And to now offer a Mosaic Pharmacy site open to the community in Bend as well.”
The Mosaic health center and pharmacy are on the ground floor of the building, and a 47-unit apartment complex for low-income seniors called “Legacy Landing” is on the upper three floors.
The complex is a Housing Works property, and six of the apartments have been set aside for qualifying Mosaic Medical patients with chronic medical conditions.
This is the second joint project between Mosaic Medical and Housing Works, as they opened a similar complex in Redmond in 2017.
“We are very excited to be partnering with Mosaic Medical on this development,” said Geoff Wall, Chief Financial Officer of Housing Works.
“By integrating Mosaic’s clinic on-site and providing a link to their proactive, team-based approach to coordinated care, we can greatly improve the health of the residents and the surrounding community.”
Mosaic occupies 13,297 sq. ft. on the ground floor of the building.
Their area was designed by GL3 Architects of Bend, while R&H Construction was the construction contractor.
An innovative DIRTT system featuring flexible wall and floor structures will allow for simplified renovations as needed in the future.
“The DIRTT flexible wall and flooring system will provide us with the ability to accommodate changes in the way healthcare is delivered in the future,” said Steve Strang, Chief Financial Officer at Mosaic Medical.
The new site will host an average of 85 staff members, who will see up to 150 patients each day.
Mosaic Medical is a nonprofit community health center with 15 clinics across Central Oregon.
