Hearts for Health Integrated Care Center

A Case Study

Every Heart Has a Story to Tell

Enterprise, Oregon

Hearts for Health Capital Campaign

Located in the Northeast Oregon’s scenic Wallowa County is the Hearts for Health Integrated Care Center. This center is a partnership between Winding Waters Community Health Clinic and Wallowa Valley Center for Wellness. These two clinics have been leaders in bringing together key parts of Wallowa County’s health care delivery system to increase coordination, improve access and eliminate disparity. They truly believe that the integration of primary care and mental health into whole-person health services, is the future of healthcare.

Westby Associates, Inc. began working with Wallowa Valley Center for Wellness in November 2016 conducting a Mission-Vision workshop followed by a feasibility study. In March 2020, the two clinics joined together to create the Hearts for Health LLC.

Over the five years of our work together, including four “Hearts for Health” fundraising events, we raised over $6.4M from a variety of sources from public funding, foundation grants, and community giving.

Wallowa Valley Center for Wellness and Winding Waters Clinic celebrated the opening of the 18,932 square foot Hearts for Health Integrated Care Center with a ribbon cutting ceremony held on September 10, 2021.

What The Community Says

“I would never have known how to start this massive campaign. They’ve been critical in every step of the way. We could have never done it without them.”

“Westby Associates have been with us from conception to completion of our 5-year project and have been nothing short of exceptionally professional.  They are truly experts in the field of fundraising and development.  Utilizing a wealth of knowledge from their Executive Team, they worked with our Board of Directors to use the capital campaign as a platform to reinvigorate our Mission, Vision, and Values Statements reflecting our growth and evolution of our business, while complementing the message of giving for an amazing community project.  This capital campaign was unlike anything that has ever been accomplished in our county and all because Westby had the vision and expertise to lead us to success and cultivate donor relationships that we will have for years to come.  We owe our project success to the Westby team and are so thankful to have had them on this project!”
