The primary outpatient location is located at Salud Medical Center in Woodburn, Oregon. Additional time is spent with our sister clinic Lancaster Family Health Center in Salem, Oregon. The fellowship is affiliated with Yakima Valley Farm Workers Clinic, which has many additional urban and rural sites that would be available for elective rotations.
The principal site for training is Legacy Silverton Medical Center which is a 48-bed hospital in the heart of Oregon’s Willamette Valley featuring a Family Birth Center, hospitalist service, and emergency services. This rural access hospital serves the local community of Silverton with a population of roughly 10,000 and delivers roughly 1,200 babies a year. The hospital has a Level I Special Care Nursery. Inpatient newborn care is collaboratively provided by family physicians, pediatricians, and midwives. The hospital also has a direct link to neonatal nurse practitioners at the nearby Randall Children’s Hospital.
