A letter to Oregon's Governor from our CEO & CMO

There is much concern for our members around the impacts of telehealth and remote visits for our medical providers across Oregon and COIPA's CEO & CMO are working to bring attention early.





Letter to Governor Kate Brown

Physician Practice COVID-19 Relief Letter

COIPA added its name to the following petition that was sent to the federal legislators to ensure there is relief set aside for independent provider practices in the relief packages that are being funded by the Federal Government. You are also encouraged to reach out independently to both state and federal legislators directly to express your concerns.  Please let us know if you need help drafting such a letter for your organization.

Letter to the U.S. Senate and House of Representatives

Our community is reaching out to extend their services and to ensure that our patients continue to have the care they need during this crisis. Below are the clinics that are either extending services or in need of additional support. If you would like to be added to this list please reach out to your COIPA Team, this site is updated as often as needed.

Northwest Pediatrics & Adolescent Medicine

Offering Assistance

Hood River 

Dr. Rich Martin reached out to the IPA to share his message with our members. His independent pediatrics practice in Hood River is flexible enough that if a provider were to suddenly be called out in quarantine, they could make arrangements to help.  



St. Charles Health Care

Needs Assistance

Central Oregon


St. Charles is putting out a call for help to area medical providers. Those who are not currently privileged to work at the hospitals, but who have training that would enable them to help, are encouraged to contact the Medical Staff Services office for emergency hospital credentials. In particular, physicians with internal medicine training who are willing to work on the hospital floors alongside the St. Charles hospitalist teams are needed.
