Roundhouse Foundation grant supports dental care in Madras
BEND, Ore. (KTVZ) -- A $50,000 grant from The Roundhouse Foundation in Sisters will support the purchase of dental equipment for the new Mosaic Madras Health Center.
The center is part of the new Jefferson County Health and Wellness Center, a partnership with Mosaic Medical and Jefferson County Public Health that recently opened.
A community ribbon-cutting celebration for the facility is set for Friday, June 24 at 2:30 p.m.
“We are so pleased to provide some funds for needed equipment for Mosaic Medical’s new clinic in Madras. It is challenging to learn, work or create when you or your loved ones are unwell or in pain,” said Erin Borla, Executive Director of The Roundhouse Foundation in Sisters. “This new clinic will continue to enhance Mosaic Medical's work to reduce additional barriers for underinsured Central Oregonians to access affordable, high quality healthcare."
Mosaic has served the Madras community since 2006, providing medical services to all residents of Jefferson County no matter what language they speak, their health insurance status or their ability to pay. The new facility will double the number of medical exam rooms, provide much needed space for dental and behavioral health services, and add a low-cost pharmacy available to all.
“We are grateful to The Roundhouse Foundation for recognizing and supporting the important role that oral health plays in the overall health of our Madras community members,” said Dr. José Javier, Mosaic’s Dental Director.
The new health center will be located adjacent to St. Charles Madras at 500 NE A St. on land donated by the hospital system. The building will house Mosaic’s Madras Health Center, Mosaic Pharmacy (open to the community) and Jefferson County Public Health.
The Roundhouse Foundation grant brings Mosaic’s capital campaign for the project closer to reaching the $5.3 million funding goal—over $5 million has been raised to date. Mosaic is currently seeking additional private grants and donations to reach the total project funding goal.
