The Warm Springs Health & Wellness Center was completed in the fall of 1993. This facility (37,000 sq. ft) is owned by the tribe and made available to the Indian Health Service for direct medical and dental health care. An older brick building dating to the 1930’s is utilized for the Alcohol and Mental Health Counseling Program.
All direct dental and medical professionals are hired by the federal government. Five medical doctors and four dental professionals including a pediatric dentist comprise the staffing package at the Health and Wellness Center. One psychologist and psychiatrist, along with the director make up the professional staff at the Community Counseling Center.
The Confederated Tribes of Warm Springs in conjunction with the Indian Health Service provides comprehensive direct health care services for the tribal members, other federally recognized Indian tribes and other appropriate segments of the local population. Contract Health is provided to those living on the reservation or designated catchment area and is paid by the Managed Care Program operated by the Confederated Tribes. Podiatry, Phematology, Cardiology, ENT, Pediatric Nephrology, oral surgery and Endodontia services are also provided. Ancillary support classes in nutrition, healthy cooking and exercise programs are provided to all patients. The Confederated Tribes provides mental health, substance abuse, WIC, MCH, Home Health, Physical Therapy, and Healthy Kid’s Program services to these same patients. The total patient population is approximately 5,750 annually.
