Samaritan North Lincoln Hospital
Samaritan North Lincoln Hospital is an accredited rural critical access hospital located in the popular beach town of Lincoln City, Oregon.
Since 1968, we have provided quality medical services - including emergency, primary and specialty care - to this diverse community and its coastal visitors. We are conveniently located in a peaceful setting overlooking Devils Lake, just 1.2 miles off Highway 101 in northeast Lincoln City.
The replacement hospital
As a not-for-profit hospital, we are committed to building healthier communities together through community benefit activities based on meeting the needs identified in community health assessments.
Along with our health and medical services, we also are proud to operate the Samaritan Early Learning Center for infants, toddlers and children.
2015 brought a series of meetings between Samaritan Health Services and the District with the mutual objective of building a new Hospital. On February 5, 2016, Samaritan Health Services and the North Lincoln Health District signed a Purchase and Sale Agreement wherein the District sold all of its Properties and Facilities and transferred the North Lincoln Hospital Foundation to Samaritan Health Services in exchange for Samaritan building and licensing a new hospital to replace the existing aging facility within a three year period. The New Hospital opened on February 4, 2020.
2021 brought the need for a new Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) to the forefront as the existing MRI needs of replacement. The District contributed $1,334,000. towards the MRI Replacement Project which is expected to be operational summer of 2022.
The District and Samaritan Health Services have an interest in providing licensed and qualified nursing individuals to the medical field. The District has for several years contributed funds to the Oregon Coast Community College in support of their nursing program. In turn, Samaritan Health Services has acquired many new trained employees.
Proposed Drug and Alcohol Treatment Center
The Pacific Communities Health District (Newport) and the North Lincoln Health District have been conscious of a growing need in Lincoln County for a drug and alcohol treatment and rehabilitation service and facility. An opportunity to procure a former assisted living facility has been acted on by Pacific Communities Health District. The designed and construction to convert the facility to a treatment center is being developed by Samaritan Health Services under the project cover of Samaritan Treatment and Recovery Services (STARS). North Lincoln Health District will contribute to the project after the final costs of the MRI are known. This project will also have a mental health component.
