Pend Oreille County is home to Public Hospital District #1, Newport Hospital and Health Services, comprised of:
• Newport Community Hospital (a critical access hospital in Newport),
• Newport Health Center Primary Care Clinic (8 family physicians, 4 healthcare affiliates and a general surgeon)
• River Mountain Village Assisted Living
• Long Term Care
While life in Pend Oreille County naturally encourages an active lifestyle, a grassroots community movement called the Pend Oreille Health Coalition is proactive about the issue as they promote, educate and motivate local residents toward a healthy future. The Coalition’s purpose is to convene leaders in our area to engage in discussions about the health of our community – to work together to build a shared vision and voice in our region. For information regarding activities and monthly meetings, please contact Jenny Smith at Newport Hospital and Health Services (509)447-2441.
