The Deschutes Rim Health Clinic is a rural community health care organization located in Maupin, Oregon.  The clinic’s service area is within a federally-designated Health Professional Shortage Area (HPSA), meaning it has an “acute shortage of health care providers” and also is a federally-designated Medically Underserved Area (MUA), meaning it lacks the resources “to meet the medical needs of the resident population.”


The goals of the clinic are to provide quality primary health care services to the community, to provide health education that is oriented toward health maintenance and prevention and to offer specialty services to an isolated community.

It is the philosophy of the Deschutes Rim Health Clinic to provide the rural communities of South Wasco County with high quality medical care for our friends, neighbors, and visitors.
