Two Substantial Grants Bring Madras Capital Campaign to 95% Funded

Apr 22, 2022

Mosaic Medical, a nonprofit community health center providing quality care for all in Bend, Redmond, Prineville and Madras, was recently awarded a $50,000 grant from the Marie Lamfrom Charitable Foundation as well as a substantial grant from The Ford Family Foundation. The funds will be used to support the development of the new Madras Health Center, a partnership with Jefferson County Public Health that is scheduled to open this spring. These two grants bring Mosaic’s capital campaign for the project closer to reaching the $5.3 million funding goal—over $5 million has been raised to date.

The new Center will provide critical care to those who need it most in Jefferson County, and we eagerly await its opening.”

The new health center will be located adjacent to St. Charles Madras at 500 NE A St. on land donated by the hospital system. The building will house Mosaic’s Madras Health Center, Mosaic Pharmacy (open to the community) and Jefferson County Public Health. The location of the facility is of great benefit to community members, who can be easily referred to Mosaic’s primary care, dental or behavioral services, keeping the hospital’s emergency room clear for critical needs.

“Sharing the space with Jefferson County Public Health will mean that we have better collaboration and support services for the community between our two agencies,” said Elaine Knobbs-Seasholtz, Mosaic’s Director of Strategy and Development.

“And in the same spirit of partnership, we are thrilled to welcome this new relationship with the Marie Lamfrom Charitable Foundation,” said Penny Pritchard, Grants Program Manager at Mosaic. “We share the same appreciation for the role of relationships in successfully improving the health and well-being of the individuals, families and communities we both serve. And we look forward to growing this relationship to continue improving the lives of Central Oregonians.”

Mosaic has served the Madras community since 2006, providing medical services to all residents of Jefferson County no matter what language they speak, their health insurance status or their ability to pay. Over the years the need for health services has grown, along with Mosaic’s ability to provide it. The new facility will double the number of medical exam rooms, provide much needed space for dental and behavioral health services, and add a low-cost pharmacy available to all.

Mosaic is currently seeking private grants and donations to reach the $5.3 million project funding goal. To learn more about getting involved in this life-changing health center, please reach out to Emily Boynton, Senior Development Officer at [email protected] or call (541) 323-3860.
