Why the Eastside Rocks #7:

The Medical District

Let’s face it, when you need serious medical care, you head east. The whole section of town surrounding and anchored by St. Charles Medical Center on Neff Road, is the "Medical District": the hospital, surgical centers, Bend Memorial Clinic, Central Oregon Radiology, and much more encompass that area. That’s even reflected in two of the street names: Doctors Drive and Medical Center Drive.

It’s close to major Eastside roads, easy to access, and you can get all your healthcare needs met without having to leave the area. That’s hard to beat.

  1. You do realize that St. Charles is one of the worst hospitals around, right? They care way more about their bottom line than the patients utilizing their services. And don’t even get me started on some of the idiot "specialists" with the God complexes.

  2. At least we live in an area with medical services. Think of the folks in Burns, John Day and other small places that have to drive to medical care.
