At the Clinic!  

Next time you visit the clinic, you will notice the Little Free Library on the front of the building.  These little book-sharing boxes are now found all over the US as well as in other countries. Since the program began in 2009, 20,000 of them have been established around the world. The idea is simple.  Take a book and leave a book - all free.  Help to keep our Little Free Library  busy - take a book, leave a book.


​​​​​The McKenzie River Clinic treats an average of 2,400 patients a year. Capable family nurse practitioners see all our patients and the Clinic is able to treat complex conditions, help manage acute and chronic illnesses or injuries and prescribe medication - all with compassion and individual attention rarely found in the health care system.

Welcome to the McKenzie River Medical Clinic and Foundation!

“I know that my family will always get great care at the clinic. My son has very bad asthma and rather than worry about making the hour drive to Springfield if he has an attack, the Clinic - our Clinic - is nearby. The nurse practitioners are very caring and know our family. That’s important.”

Alejandra Montes, Patient.
