Expansion of services and facilities are the top goals of the new Chief Executive Officer at Columbia Valley Community Health, Manuel Navarro. Navarro, who's been at CVCH for about 12 years, has been Interim CEO since David Olson retired from the position in January. CVCH performed a nationwide search, and Navarro was selected from 57 qualified candidates who applied for the position.

He says expanded access to primary care is needed in both the Chelan and Wenatchee areas; CVCH has just broken ground on a 29-thousand square foot facility in East Wenatchee . . .

Navarro says CVCH believes in integrated primary care, which includes components such as oral and mental health; he says it allows the clinicians and teams at the clinic to work together:

Aside from brick and mortar facilities, CVCH also has a state of the art mobile unit that travels to Orondo, Peshastin, Rock Island and Malaga; there's also a smaller van that can service agricultural areas and housing for ag workers.
