About St. Charles

About St. Charles Health System

With four hospitals and more than 120 employed medical providers, St. Charles Health System is the largest provider of medical care in Central Oregon. We take our role in our communities seriously and have pledged to work with our partners to achieve our vision: Creating America's healthiest community, together.

St. Charles Health System began in 2001 as Cascade Health Services when St. Charles Medical Center in Bend merged with Central Oregon District Hospital in Redmond. Today, in addition to owning and operating medical centers in Bend, Redmond and Madras, we lease and operate Pioneer Memorial Hospital in Prineville.

Our medical centers in Bend and Redmond are accredited by The Joint Commission. St. Charles Bend is Oregon's only Level II Trauma Center east of the Cascades. Pioneer Memorial Hospital and St. Charles Madras are critical access hospitals that are well regarded in their commitment to modern, progressive health care.

A private, nonprofit Oregon corporation, we're Central Oregon's largest employer with more than 3,400 caregivers in Bend, Madras, Redmond, Prineville and Sisters combined. More than 350 active medical staff members and approximately 200 visiting medical staff members also make it possible for St. Charles to deliver a wide range of excellent care in a compassionate, healing environment.
