Coos Bay, North Bend, Bandon, Coquille, Myrtle Point and Gold Beach.
Patients also come to NBMC clinics from Reedsport – north of Coos Bay and from Brookings, south of Coos Bay.
Approximate population served in Coos, Curry and Douglas counties is 90,000.
Patients in our three key counties hold NBMC in high regard. Our communities are aware that NBMC screens its physicians well before they become members of our clinic. Patients believe that, if a physician qualifies to practice in our clinics, that physician is excellent.
NBMC physicians set their own hours and days they work. By way of example, NBMC has physicians who want to work early morning and leave in the early afternoons and other physicians who want to see evening patients.
NBMC physicians have autonomy in their practice. NBMC will provide support to help physicians run their practices effectively. At physician request, we will help screen new employees, hire, discipline or terminate their staff. Of course, some physicians prefer to manage these tasks themselves. NBMC is there to help when and where needed.
