Beginning this month, Mosaic Medical will take another step toward meeting patient needs where they live. A Mosaic doctor will be making regular visits to the Saving Grace emergency shelter to provide medical care to residents. Many of these women have not been able to access medical care for some time — some may have fled directly from an abusive partner and may have been prohibited by that person from seeking medical attention entirely.

A Mosaic doctor and medical assistant will provide a variety of services to Saving Grace residents, including preventative services like general exams and well-child checkups, as well as vaccinations and prescription medications.

"It's a tremendous benefit to have community partners like Mosaic Medical, who understand the needs of domestic and sexual violence survivors," said Trish Meyer, interim executive director at Saving Grace. "Meeting them in a safe space can make all the difference for the women and children we serve — ultimately leading to better health outcomes for our community."

The City of Prineville has announced Ron Allen, owner of Ron's Comfort Food Café, will be taking over the restaurant and banquet facilities at Meadow Lakes Golf Course. The decision to lease the restaurant and banquet portion of the business is based on the city's commitment to being fiscally responsible.

Ron's will open this Friday, Feb. 1 and will serve breakfast and lunch daily. To facilitate the transition, Meadow Lakes Restaurant will be closed through Thursday, Jan. 31. With much of the current staff staying in place, it is their goal that this transition in restaurant ownership will be smooth and a positive change for the community moving forward.
