A mountain of medical movements this week...

I know there have been previous issues with quite a few medical-related-business announcements, but in this week's Around the State, there seemed to at least one in every region. Check it out:

Amedisys Home Health Care will open at Vintage Place in McMinnville. Portland Business Journal, 3-19-10

• Two general internists will join Sky Lakes Medical Center in Klamath County this summer with a possible third position that may also be filled. The center is now focused on filling positions in neurology, obstetrics, and dermatology. Herald and News, 3-24-10

West Wind Dental in Seaside is adding two dentists to its staff. Daily Astorian, 3-18-10

• The Center for Human Development in La Grande, a private non-profit organization that provides Union County residents with a broad array of physical and mental health services, moved to new headquarters. CHD employs about 90 people, including doctors, nurses, social workers, counselors, and other health and rehabilitation specialists. The Observer, 3-3-10

Mid-Valley Scrubs and More opened in Lebanon. It offers scrub pants and tops, shoes, stethoscopes and other items for medical professionals. Lebanon Express, 3-17-10

Mercy Flights recently announced they have eliminated 10 positions; the first ever cuts to their employees. Mercy Flights provides ambulance services to most of Jackson County’s residents. (KOBI), 3-8-10

Bay Area Hospital in Coos Bay plans to break ground in summer 2011 on a 97,000-square-foot expansion project. The four-story wing won’t mean additional staff or services, but it will give caregivers more space so patients will have a better experience. The work is expected to cost $39 million and take three years to complete. The World, 3-11-10

Of course, many other types of businesses also had announcements. You can read about them in the latest Around the State (available soon on the Publications section of

Older issues also available.
