Corvallis is rapidly becoming a regional health care center and enjoys unusually sophisticated health services for a community of its size. Benton County residents are served by Good Samaritan Regional Medical Center, a regional health facility that is one of five rural referral centers in Oregon with special programs serving a three-county area. The Corvallis Clinic has been providing quality health care since 1947. Specialists at the Corvallis Clinic are available to provide care for all members of the family with departments ranging from immediate care to oncology, from obstetrics to gerontology.
