Adventist Health Announces Clinic Closures in Sheridan, Welches and Lincoln City

Due to long-standing challenges with provider staffing, Adventist Health has announced the closure of its medical offices in Sheridan, Welches and Lincoln City. These closures are due to the years-long efforts and difficulty recruiting qualified providers in these rural communities. “We have faced significant challenges with not only recruiting but retaining providers in these areas, even working with national and renown recruiting firms with a high track record of success have not helped the situation,” said Eric Swanson, President of Adventist Health Tillamook. The clinic in Lincoln City will close on April 12, Hoodland in Welches on April 1, and Sheridan on March 17.
