Department Overview

Cascades East is located in Klamath Falls, Oregon, providing an incredible rural medicine experience. Residents enjoy numerous outdoor opportunities and the scenery of the Cascade mountain range. The clinic is a certified Patient Centered Primary Care Medical Home, with an emphasis on team-based care and innovation. Sky Lakes Medical Center, the hospital at which the Cascades East Family Medicine Center is based, is the only hospital for the Klamath Basin, which serves over 100,000 people. The combination of a strong medical community and populations with significant health care needs makes Klamath Falls a unique setting to practice primary care. Providers work within a collaborative interprofessional team to practice the full scope of family medicine, often caring for entire families from newborns all the way to grandparents.
