The Central Oregon Veteran’s Outreach transfers their outreach medical van services to Mosaic Medical; bringing those services to more people in Central Oregon.

 

COVA spokesperson Chuck Hemmingway says the COVO medical van has been very effective for the past year and a half in Bend, and now having Mosaic Medical staff operate the van will have a big impact on all Central Oregon communities.  "We believe we've cut down on visits to the emergency room, the number of police calls out into the camps, the number of ambulance calls out into the camps. And all that has resulted, we think, in a very significant taxpayers savings, as a result of this program that was initiated by veterans to help the greater community at large."

 

Hemmingway says they were running out of volunteer doctors and nurses to work with the van, and with their association with Mosaic Medical, all of their clinics and personnel will be available to them.

 

The COVO van begins new services on January first and will visit various areas in Central Oregon about six times a month.
