Our District

Morrow County Health District is a 501 (c) (3) organization located in rural northeast Oregon.  It consists of two certified Rural Health Clinics, county-wide Home Health and Hospice services, a 21-bed acute care Critical Access Hospital, and county-wide Emergency Medical Services.  The two clinics are located in Irrigon and Heppner.  Pioneer Memorial Hospital is located in Heppner, and has been in operation since 1950.  In 1994 the county’s voters agreed to separate the hospital and clinics from county government into an Oregon Special District, and Morrow County Health District was formed.

The District’s service area includes all of Morrow County, which has a population of 12,540 in 2,049 sq. miles, and neighboring Gilliam and Wheeler counties, which have a combined population of 3,470 and square miles totaling 2,936. 

Throughout Morrow County Health District’s history the county’s voters have been supportive of the District.  A three-year operating levy was passed in 2005 that brought in revenue from 2006 to 2008, when the District put a 5-year levy before the voters.  This levy was also approved, but in the interim or “gap year” which was 2009, the District received $475,193 less in tax revenue and posted a $387,155 loss.


The district's facilities are modern and up-to-date, while services are provided with old-fashioned personal care.
