About Mosaic Medical — Quality Care for All
Mosaic Medical is a nonprofit community health center that serves Central Oregonians from all walks of life. Through a network of 15 clinics, we offer health services that address each patient’s medical, dental, mental health, nutrition and medication needs. The quality of our care is never influenced by how much money our patients make, what language they speak or the status of their insurance coverage.
If you are interested in establishing care with Mosaic Medical, call 541-383-3005. One of our team members will be glad to assist you.
Founded under President Johnson during the War on Poverty initiative in the 1960s, Community Health Centers provide citizens across the nation with access to crucial primary care. By reducing patient barriers such as cost, lack of insurance, distance and language, these bi-partisan, federally funded models of healthcare delivery now serve nearly 30 million Americans through a system of over 1,400 CHCs across the country.
The first CHC in Central Oregon, Ochoco Community Clinic, was founded in Prineville in 2002 in response to community concern about the number of people ending up in the emergency room with preventable acute needs. One poignant incident occurred in the spring of 2001, when a Prineville family without insurance lost their infant to a preventable disease. Shortly after, local leaders came together with the goal of ensuring that the poor, low-income, and uninsured individuals would have access to primary care.
During its first year, Ochoco Community Clinic ensured that nearly 700 individuals were able to receive affordable healthcare. The need for accessible healthcare continued to grow across the region, and two additional clinics were opened in Madras and Bend as part of Ochoco Health Systems. In 2008, the three clinics were renamed as one nonprofit organization: Mosaic Medical.
Mosaic Medical Today
Today, through a network of 15 clinics—including six School-Based Health Centers and a Mobile Community Clinic—Mosaic serves a patient base of 27,000 community members in Bend, Redmond, Madras, and Prineville.
Our organization employs close to 400 staff across the region, representing the demographics of those we serve.

Our CEO, Megan Haase, FNP is one of the original providers who helped to launch the Prineville clinic at the heart of the Mosaic legacy.
