Welcome to Eastern Oregon

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

Heppner is a great place to enjoy the outdoors. With Penland Lake and Cutsforth Park located near Heppner, fishing, camping and picnicking are only a short drive away. The Morrow-Grant Off Highway Vehicle Park is a great outdoor destination with 8,125 acres of ATV trails, camping, hiking, fantastic scenery and amazing wildlife viewing. If you want to stick around town, the Heppner Museum gives you an idea of what life was like during the early settlement years.

As this is a new preceptor site, please feel free to contact the clinic or NEOAHEC if you have any questions at all. The apartment is fully furnished, and basic household items, such as linens and towels, should be included in the apartment. If you do feel that something is missing, please contact the hospital.
