Mid-Columbia Medical Center (MCMC) is a 49-bed rural comprehensive medical center located in The Dalles, Oregon offering a diverse array of care and services, and is internationally recognized as one of the leading innovators in patient-centered care.
MCMC offers a continuum of services, including education, wellness and prevention programs, outpatient and in-home services. Our commitment to offering our patients a broad range of advanced care has led to the development of a modern medical campus staffed by highly trained health professionals using the latest medical technology. In 1992, MCMC became the first hospital in the world to implement the Planetree philosophy of care facility wide. In the ensuing years, MCMC has been transformed into a one-of-a-kind center of healing, addressing a person’s emotional, spiritual, intellectual and environmental concerns in addition to their physical needs.
In June 2014, Mid-Columbia Medical Center and Oregon Health & Science University (OHSU) forged an alliance designed to elevate the delivery of health services in the region by enabling us to offer a more comprehensive range of primary and specialty care services.

The successful candidate will promote, support and exemplify a culture with a focus on patient-centered care through the Planetree components, emphasis on the Every Encounter Counts Initiative and sustaining engaged employees.
