Community Hospital-Fairfax Moves Forward with Oregon Primary Care Clinic

Fairfax, Mo (August 13, 2015): Community Hospital-Fairfax (CH-F) has announced their commitment to open a family medicine clinic in Oregon to serve southern Holt County.

CH-F has been exploring the prospect of opening a clinic in Oregon for several months. Meeting with civic groups, the city council and initiating a community survey were all part of hospital’s effort to ensure that a clinic in southern Holt County would be a good fit for the hospital and community.

Richard Wilson, Mayor, along with Steve Rogers and Tom Stoeklein, have worked closely with leadership from Community Hospital-Fairfax to bring primary care back to Oregon.

“We feel very strongly that southern Holt County has a need for access to a provider and are very excited to have Community Hospital-Fairfax in our community,” commented Richard.

“The community has been extremely gracious over the last few months. The warm reception certainly helped us to feel very confident about the success of this clinic and our partnership with the community moving forward,” indicated Roger Steinkruger, Community Hospital-Fairfax CEO.

The hospital intends to open the clinic in the city owned medical office building. The clinic will be staffed with a Family Nurse Practitioner that will work in partnership with Dustin Carpenter M.D. who currently sees patients at Mound City Family Medicine.

The timeline for opening the clinic is still being finalized and will be publicized as soon as possible.

“We have a number of items that need checked off the list before we open. We are working enthusiastically on the list and can’t wait to open the doors, “explained Ann Schlueter, Business Development Executive.
