Eugene residents have access to quality health care with two major medical centers, Sacred Heart Medical Center at RiverBend and McKenzie-Willamette Medical Center.

Sacred Heart Medical Center at RiverBend

The system celebrated the opening of Springfield’s Sacred Heart Medical Center at RiverBend in 2008.

This full-service hospital ranks among the state’s busiest for surgeries due to such advancements as the robotic assisted da Vinci Si Surgical System, the state-of-the-art wound treatment Hyberbaric Center and non-invasive brain surgery via Gamma Knife technology.

Expectant mothers can feel comfortable in any of the location’s spacious birthing suites. The labor and delivery wing has a homey, family friendly atmosphere. Adjacent to each delivery room is a neonatal resuscitation area and emergency operating rooms are located at the end of the hall.

For a more natural birthing experience, the Nurse Midwifery Birth Center is located less than a mile from the hospital. It offers a full staff of licensed midwives, relaxing birthing rooms and excellent prenatal and postpartum care.

First-rate emergency care also is offered at both locations, with wait times updated every five minutes on PeaceHealth Oregon’s website.

McKenzie-Williamette Medical Center  

Springfield’s McKenzie-Willamette Medical Center offers a broad range of services including a level III trauma center, conventional and robotic surgery and a comprehensive heart center.

The hospital is equipped with the area’s first wireless pacemaker technology. Designed to improve patient care and simplify follow-up, the pacemaker notifies physicians of changes in a patient’s device or condition, with wireless access to automatic test results.

Other unique services include the Sleep Solutions Center, Hand Therapy Center, and Women’s Health Center.
