PeaceHealth offers free Advance Directive workshops - 07/12/19

PeaceHealth St. John Medical Center is offering free workshops to assist families in creating plans for care in the event a patient is rendered unable to speak on their own behalf. The workshops will provide information and assistance in completing a planning document called an "Advance Directive."

What is an Advance Directive?
An advance directive is a legal form that describes the kinds of medical care a patient desires if something happens that prevents them from participating in their own medical care decisions. Putting these wishes in writing helps avoid confusion or conflict in times of crisis or uncertainty.

Your Voice, Your Choice – Advance Care Planning Workshops
All classes will be held from 2:30 – 4 p.m.

  • Wednesday, Aug. 28 in Conf. Room A/B
  • Wednesday, Oct. 23 in Conf. Room C/D
  • Wednesday, Dec 11 in Conf. Room C/D

Your Voice, Your Choice
Making your personal goals, values, religious and cultural beliefs clearly known in advance of a crisis is one of the greatest gifts you can give yourself, your family and friends. Doing so is a gift of love and peace of mind. PeaceHealth St. John offers free, bi-monthly community presentations to help you complete your own advance directive documents, and also learn how to discuss advance directives with your loved ones. Register at www.peacehealth.org/yourvoiceyourchoice

Questions?
People interested in attending who have questions about the workshops may contact Melissa Ensey at mensey@peacehealth.org.

PeaceHealth to open same-day clinic in south Eugene - 07/09/19

EUGENE, Ore. -- PeaceHealth Medical Group will open a same-day clinic in the Woodfield Station retail development in south Eugene, offering even more choices to fit with patients’ busy lives. 

PeaceHealth Woodfield Station, located at 2846 Willamette St., will start serving patients on Monday, July 22, and a soft opening celebration will be held on July 26.

“We’re excited to add this clinic to PeaceHealth Medical Group’s network of primary, specialty and urgent care clinics in Eugene-Springfield,” said Brad Wakefield, vice president of operations for PeaceHealth Medical Group’s Oregon network. “It’s in a convenient location and will be open earlier and later than regular medical clinics. This clinic also will offer online scheduling. So someone starting to feel ill in the morning could go online, schedule an appointment for later that same day and be seen when they arrived at the clinic, rather than getting in line.”   

“Increasingly patients want to take care of nonurgent health care needs at times and places that are convenient to them,” Wakefield said. “This is the first of a number of same-day clinics PeaceHealth plans to add to better meet those expectations.”

PeaceHealth Woodfield Station will open with limited hours, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday. In September, hours will expand to 8 a.m.-7 p.m., seven days a week, and primary care services will be added at a later date.

A grand opening celebration for the clinic is planned for late September.
