FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
As part of their August board meeting, the Board of Directors and senior leaders of Valley Family Health Care took part in a groundbreaking ceremony for their new clinic. Located at the corner of Fortner Street and NW 8th Ave. in Ontario, Oregon, the clinic will offer primary medical care and behavioral health services. The new clinic will also have an on-site pharmacy. Currently, the closest pharmacy is almost 2 miles away.
VFHC already serves many people from this part of Ontario, but the proximity to the new River Bend Place complex - as well as many other apartments and homes - will help bring needed services 'closer to home' for many in the surrounding neighborhoods. VFHC also looks forward to serving new patients at this location.
The VFHC Board of Directors is composed of volunteers from the communities it serves, with more than half of them being current patients. Their leadership and vision were key in approving this project, bringing needed services to this part of Ontario.
The clinic is expected to open in early April of 2023; watch for updates on the VFHC Facebook page as that time approaches.
