Events offer chance to meet primary care providers

Salem Health is continuing to host meet-and-greet events throughout the year to offer people in the mid-Willamette Valley an opportunity to meet primary care providers before making an appointment. Several family medicine providers from around the community will be participating in the events including those from Willamette Health Partners clinics.

        Upcoming events in January and February include the following:

Wednesday, Jan. 25
4:30 – 6:30 p.m.
Salem Hospital campus
Bldg. D
Community Health Education Center

Monday, Jan. 30
11:30 a.m. – 1:30 p.m.
4:30 – 6:30 p.m.

Bldg. C, Rooms A-C

Tuesday, Feb. 21
Noon – 1 p.m.

         Each person who registers will have five to seven minutes to talk with each provider at the event. Participants can request a follow-up call from the clinics of any of the providers they would like to make an appointment with.

        Willamette Health Partners Family Medicine has five clinic locations — two in Salem, one in Keizer, one in Monmouth (Monmouth Medical Center) and one in Dallas (West Valley Physicians & Surgeons). A sixth location will open in West Salem in the spring of 2012.

        Anyone interested in attending an event and meeting the providers can register online at or by calling 503-814-4400. A complete list of the event dates and locations is available at as well.

        Willamette Health Partners is a part of Salem Health, which includes Salem Hospital, West Valley Hospital and other affiliated health care organizations offering quality care to people in and around Oregon’s Willamette Valley.
