Supporting Madras Health Center opening Spring of 2022
As you might have seen in the news, Mosaic and the Jefferson County Health Department have partnered to build a new health center in Madras – scheduled to open next spring.
Since 2006, Mosaic has served the Madras community, making basic medical services more accessible to an underserved portion of the population of Jefferson County. During these 15 years, the need for our services has grown along with our ability to provide more essential services. With these expanded services in mind, we did not hesitate when Jefferson County approached us to share in the construction of a new, larger building with the Jefferson County Health Department, to be built on land donated by St. Charles Madras.
In this new building, Mosaic will be able to double our medical exam room space, provide much needed additional space for Mosaic dental and behavioral health services and offer a new, low-cost Mosaic pharmacy available to the entire community. We will also be able to support many of the same low-income clients as the Health Department in one convenient location, steps away from specialized medical services like labs and x-rays that are often difficult for our patients to access. This location also means that the hospital can easily refer patients to our primary care, dental, or behavioral health services, freeing up the emergency room for the most urgent and critical of cases.
EXPANDED SERVICES IN JEFFERSON COUNTY
Three Dental Chairs
Pharmacy (non-Mosaic Patients can access)
Nutrition Classes in Shared Community Room (other partners welcome!)
13 Medical Exam Rooms
Two Behavioral Health Rooms
Virtual / Drive-up Care
One goal for the new health center is that community members will feel like they have a health home. With St. Charles and the County Health Department right there on the same campus with Mosaic, intertwined with walking paths and epic views, our hope is that all patients and visitors will feel welcome.

HOW YOU CAN HELP
We could not be more grateful for the financial support we have received from Jefferson County and the State of Oregon, but we cannot make this project happen without the help of our community as well. To ensure that the new Mosaic Madras Health Center comes to fruition, we must raise $5.4 million. To date, we have already raised $4 million and are seeking private grants and donations for the remaining amount. We are currently meeting with community members all throughout Central Oregon to garner their support.
