Instead, about 20,000 have signed up the past two months. This has put a strain on the health care infrastructure in Lane County, leaving about 9,000 OHP patients without a primary care physician. Trillium is taking steps to address the issues and build immediate and future health care capacity.</p><p></p> Wed, 26 Feb 2014 02:27:40 +0000 Angela Kellner 8856 at http://klcc.org About 9,000 Lane County OHP Patients Still Don't Have Primary Care Physician Flu Season Update: At Least Seven Flu-Related Deaths Reported In Oregon http://klcc.org/post/flu-season-update-least-seven-flu-related-deaths-reported-oregon <p>Oregon's flu season has arrived early, with scores of patients visiting emergency rooms and at least seven deaths caused by the infectious disease.&nbsp;</p><p></p> Tue, 07 Jan 2014 01:10:31 +0000 Jes Burns & Associated Press 5993 at http://klcc.org Flu Season Update: At Least Seven Flu-Related Deaths Reported In Oregon New Oregon Law Makes It A Crime To Smoke In Vehicle With Minors http://klcc.org/post/new-oregon-law-makes-it-crime-smoke-vehicle-minors <p>A new Oregon law went into effect January 1st making it a crime to smoke cigarettes in a vehicle with minors. It is a secondary offense to smoke in the car with minors. This means law enforcement has to stop a driver for a separate violation first. Then police can write a ticket with a fine of $250 for smoking in the vehicle with children. The second time it happens, the fine is $500.
