What We Do

We improve health care by bringing down costs and raising both quality and satisfaction.

We want to do health care better (see our History). We create a space for the health partners in the region to work together. For us, health partners include a lot more than doctors, dentists and hospitals. We also work with:

  • School districts
  • Public transportation
  • Housing groups
  • Politicians
  • And many more

There are things we are required by the State to do:

  • Oversee the local Medicaid Plan (PacificSource)
  • Write the Regional Health Assessment (RHA)
  • Write the Regional Health Improvement Plan (RHIP)

We bring patients, providers, and leaders together to solve problems. Our 200 volunteers have made our mission a success. Together we are making a healthier Central Oregon.


In response to the COVID-19 crisis the Central Oregon Health Council is operating the Central Oregon Resource Directory (CORD). Click here to view the directory.
