Lincoln County Foot Health Center becomes part of Samaritan

Samaritan Health Services and Dr. Darrell Prins, DPM, announce that as of Feb. 1, Lincoln County Foot Health Center has become a clinic of Samaritan Health Services.

The newly named Samaritan Foot Health Clinic will remain in the same location near Samaritan North Lincoln Hospital on West Devils Lake Road.

“Patients can expect the same level of care that they have come to appreciate from our staff,” said Prins, who will remain in practice at the clinic. Prins is the second podiatrist for Samaritan Health Services, joining Scott Doherty, DPM, at Samaritan Orthopedic Surgeons in Newport.

“This will help us better serve our patients’ health care needs,” explained Samaritan North Lincoln Hospital Chief Executive Officer Lesley Ogden, MD. “Dr. Prins will be a wonderful addition to the Samaritan team, and his specialized services will help us further meet the needs of residents in the Lincoln City community.”

Chris Burns Weather

Monday, Feb. 8th – Lincoln County

Summary: It’s feast or famine ’round these parts. In the wake of cool and wet weather for weeks on end, the Sun broke out yesterday and the mercury went on a rocket ride. Record high temps were set locally yesterday — Lincoln City, Waldport and Yachats either broke or tied previous records for February 7th. Newport and Depoe Bay were close, but no cigar. Regionally, Portland’s 62F and McMinnville’s 63F were new record highs. Only a handful of wispy clouds, and east winds gusting into the 20s, accompanied the mainly clear skies right on through the evening and overnight. This morning, solid high pressure was keeping the clouds away and east winds blew 15-30 mph.

Newport Airport Conditions…
Ceiling: unlimited
Visibility: 10 miles/Wind: E 22 G 28 mph/Pressure: 30.15”

Expect the sunshine feast and localized gusty east winds to continue. Tonight, clear skies and a low about 45F. A little cooler tomorrow but still sunny, highs 60-65F. Outlook is for mostly cloudy and sprinkles Wednesday, overcast Thursday, rain on Friday, then a chance of rain/showers for the weekend. The thermometer is projected to drop to slightly below seasonal by week’s end with highs of 50F and lows of 40-45F.

Travel: In the Coast Range this morning, there’s dry pavement on the highways and it’s 40F in the passes; areas of fog early becoming mostly sunny today, temperatures 60-65F. Willamette Valley destinations are expecting areas of fog early, then gradual clearing, the thermometer rising to 55-60F. The Columbia River Gorge forecast calls for sunshine, east winds gusting 30-60 mph, highs of 50-55F. For the Cascades, highways have mainly bare pavement with a few spots of ice this morning, temps are 35-40F; sunny today, the free air freezing level is 13,000 feet.

Are you interested in using your skills to help promote quality care for seniors and others living in long-term care?

Samaritan Hospice is hosting two free informational sessions about Oregon’s ombudsman program for long-term care on Thursday, Feb. 18. The first session is at 10 a.m. at the Center for Health Education, 740 SW 9th St. in Newport, and the second session will be at 1 p.m. at the Health Professions Education Center, 3011 NE 28th St. in Lincoln City.

Certified ombudsmen volunteers are independent citizen advocates who visit the residents of long-term care facilities and identify complaints or concerns. They work independently to investigate these complaints and work with staff to resolve problems, advocating from the residents’ point of view, said ​​Sherrie Flinn, Samaritan Hospice volunteer coordinator. This role is best suited for someone who has several hours available to volunteer during business weekday hours.

Debbie Boures, deputy state Long-Term Care Ombudsman for District 4, including Lincoln County, will attend the meeting to explain the program, what volunteers do, the requirements and the need for local volunteers.

For information or to RSVP, call Flinn at 541-996-7328.
