Western Lane Health Network

Better care, closer to home.

That’s the vision local leaders in healthcare, education, social services and business had when we came together in the grassroots coalition now known as the Western Lane Health network.


By mobilizing the expertise, tenacity and assets we already possess as a community, we seek to create collaborative, adaptable, sustainable programs to help individuals and families on the central Oregon coast access the preventive and emotional healthcare they need to thrive.

Current Initiative

Healthy kids. Family-friendly care.


Of West Lane kids live below the federal poverty line.


Of school kids feel sad or hopeless daily for more than 2 weeks.

Times as many suicides in West Lane County vs. the state.

In our professional roles serving the community, we see first-hand that many children and families struggle without physical and emotional healthcare: behavioral problems, family stress, school drop-out and worse.

That’s why making preventive and behavioral care, assessment and early intervention for children more accessible topped our list of priorities when we formed our network in 2014.

Our solution?

Transforming unused space in Mapleton Middle and Siuslaw Elementary Schools into safe, accessible and comfortable clinical services and resource centers.

Opened in late 2019, the centers offer behavioral assessments, counseling, early intervention, wraparound services and telehealth care under the same roof local kids share each weekday.
