Ontario

Welcome to Eastern Oregon

We are so pleased you have chosen to complete your rural rotation in Ontario!

This is a great time to enjoy the outdoors. Ontario offers many good hiking trails, fishing holes and camping spots. The Snake River, Lake Owyhee and Malheur Butte are beautiful areas that offer all of these activities. We hope you'll have some time to explore Ontario while you are here!

You may pick up the key to the student house at the Operator Station inside Holy Rosary Medical Center. To get to the Operator Station, enter the main front entrance at Holy Rosary and take the stairs to the left of the lobby. At the top of the stairs, on the first floor, is the Operator Station. You will be required to pay a $50 deposit for the key, refundable when you return the key to the Operator Station before you leave town. If you get lost in the hospital while trying to find the Operator Station, you can dial "0" from any hospital phone to be connected to the operator.
