Update on services and costs following June 10 Q&A meeting

On June 22, PeaceHealth CEO Mel Pyne responded to concerns raised at the June 10 Q&A meeting about services during the interim construction period of the new Birth Center. Mr. Pyne made the following points.

Interim Services
Hospital leadership is working with Birth Center midwives to ensure an optimal experience for mothers and families on the Labor and Delivery unit at Sacred Heart Medical Center.


PeaceHealth Patient Financial Services department will provide one-on-one consultations to Birth Center mothers and families. For eligible families, there are resources available to mitigate the financial impact of the higher cost of a hospital birth. (Patient Financial Services can be reached at (541) 686-7191.)

Friends of the Birth Center appreciates the ongoing communication as we embark on the short-term interim period.
