Why We Care
All About People
We are an organization that cares about people. We serve the physical, emotional, psychological, and spiritual needs of people in our community. Cascade Health is a place where people – employees and patients alike – are known, valued, and cared for.
We are a health care nonprofit that nurtures healthy living in our local community and offers comfort to those nearing the end of life.
A tradition of community-based health care
For more than 30 years, Cascade Health has provided charitable community health services to Lane County. Through collaboration and cooperation, we work closely with other health organizations to collectively improve our community’s health and well-being.
Many of our services were initiated as part of Springfield’s McKenzie-Willamette Hospital in the early 1980s. In 2003, McKenzie-Willamette Hospital formed a new company, McKenzie-Willamette Medical Center, which is jointly owned and operated by Triad. When this occurred, we became an independent, nonprofit health organization.
In 2008, Cascade Health Solutions sold its shares in McKenzie-Willamette Medical Center to Community Health Systems to turn its full attention to meeting the diverse health care needs of our community.
As a nonprofit organization, our mission is to improve quality of life in our community by helping to support and provide quality, charitable, compassionate health care now and for generations to come.
