One Community Health and NorthShore Medical Group, two of the Columbia River Gorge’s primary care groups, are joining together. Starting in January of 2024, NorthShore Medical Group will become part of One Community Health. NorthShore was founded in 1974 and One Community Health in 1986. New health services will become more accessible for people living in Washington as a result of the combination. Providers, staff, and phone numbers will remain the same. People with health insurance, as well as those without insurance, will continue to be welcomed as patients. Both organizations receive federal funding to provide services to all, regardless of insurance status, and offer a comprehensive sliding scale discount program for people without insurance. New to NorthShore patients will be the opportunity to utilize the sliding scale discount program for insurance plans with high deductibles, copayments, or limited coverage. Additionally, NorthShore patients will no longer have a Medicare Part B deductible.
