Coast Community Health Center was established in 2009 in Bandon, Oregon, as Bandon Community Health Center.
The health center is a non-profit rural health center founded by 65 vested community volunteers committed to providing an efficient, friendly, and caring environment for delivering high quality, affordable primary health care services for all Bandon residents and the surrounding areas.
The health center’s first clinic opened in 2010. In 2014, the organization adopted the name Coast Community Health Center, moved to its present, larger facility in Bandon, and opened an outreach office in Port Orford. The move reflects the organization’s expansion and makes more medical services accessible to Southern Oregon coast residents. Community involvement is the key to our health center’s ability to provide high-quality primary health care for all. Many of our founding volunteers have served as board directors and committee members. Our professional partnerships include medical professionals and governmental and health and human services agencies throughout the state.
