Community Wellness classes continue in 2020

Rinehart Clinic received increased grant funding for 2020 from the Columbia Pacific Coordinated Care Organization (CCO) to expand the classes we offer focusing on community wellness. 

Many of the favorite classes will return next year, and we will be adding even more. All classes will be free and open to the entire community. 

Details on next year's classes are still being fine-tuned, but we are pleased to announce our monthly Mindfulness Meditation sessions will continue, along with our popular Art of Eating classes. We will also hold a refreshed version of Finding Your Healthy Weight and a class focused on nutrition for those with blood sugar concerns, taught by our Certified Diabetes Educator.

There was so much interest this year in Dr. Andersen's Intro to Fasting class, we will hold another session next year (maybe two), and watch for information on a new weekly QiGong class starting in January at NCRD taught by Rinehart Clinic's Acupuncturist, Liz Vitale. 

We are grateful to Columbia Pacific CCO for making these classes possible, and also to our community partners who help support this grant. A big thanks to Manzanita Farmers Market, Manzanita Grocery & Deli (the Little Apple), Moon River Farm, and North County Recreation District (NCRD) for their commitment to this program and to community wellness in North Tillamook County. 

We also want to thank the Rinehart Clinic Patient Advisory Council and the community members who have participated in our classes. The feedback they have offered is invaluable in helping ensure we identify and plan classes that are important to the community and to community wellness. 

One of the most exciting aspects of the grant is the addition of a Health & Wellness Navigator position. This new team member will work with our providers, patients, and our community partners to connect participants with the resources they need to help them be successful in their wellness goals. 

The position will be posted soon, so if you know someone who has a passion for health and for people, please direct them to our website ( for all the details.

Renovations nearing completion

Since mid-October Rinehart Clinic and Pharmacy have been in various stages of construction, and the improvement project should be complete by the end of December, right on schedule. 

The renovations will result in the following changes in the clinic and pharmacy:
  • We are adding a patient restroom next to the lab with a pass-through for urine samples to make it more convenient for the patients.
  • Our Outreach Team will have a renovated space that offers more privacy for meetings with patients, and more storage for materials.
  • The former staff breakroom has been reconfigured into a room for group therapies, and will also provide meeting space. 
  • Unused space in one of the hallways will house laundry equipment for the linens that are used in our acupuncture treatment room. 
  • The area where our providers work when they are not with patients will have new shelving for easy access to reference and research materials.
  • Two new rooms were created by taking advantage of unused space – one will be a room we can use to meet one-on-one with patients; the other will be used as office space for one of our employees who has not had a dedicated workspace. 
  • The Medical Assistant station will also receive a modest update, with refreshed countertop coverings and an additional work space. 
  • Improvements to the pharmacy will include a new privacy divider to help facilitate quicker in/out patient and customer access, and a roll-up door will be added at the entrance to allow more space for over-the-counter medicines. 
PLEASE NOTE: We had hoped to be able to complete the entire project without closing the clinic or pharmacy, but it will be necessary to close the pharmacy one more time on Friday, December 6

We are grateful to our patients and customers for your patience throughout the project.
