Review for The Rinehart Endowment Fund Inc, Wheeler, OR, USA

Rating: 1 stars  

It is my understanding that the Rinehart Clinic Endowment Fund has been liquidated and donated to the Rinehart Clinic to cover day to day expenses. The fund is a victim of a high turnover rate (two thirds of its administrative staff has turned over in 2010) and bad business practice brought about by bad management and lack of fiscal responsibility. Federal funding has allowed this entity to continue to practice in an irresponsible manner.

As a patient

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Hand the management over to Tillamook County. They seem to be able to run area clinics with professionalism and transparency.

Role:  General Member of the Public & I am a past patient of the Rinehart Clinic.
 

Review for Rinehart Clinic, Wheeler, OR, USA

Rating: 1 stars  

The Rinehart Clinic is a Federally Qualified Health Clinic and is the poster child for misused government funding. Although the administration, medical director and the board proclaim a worthy mission in practice they all fall far short of their stated goals. Incompetence, arrogance and a lack of respect for employees and standard business practice are reflected in a large turnover rate as well as a budget shortfall. Check carefully before you consider a donation to this clinic.

inside organization

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Fire the CEO, replace the Executive Board and require peer review of the charts of the medical director by an outside independent doctor . I would also change the name of the Organization as I think Dr. Rinehart does not understand that as a non-profit and an FQHC he is no longer the clinic owner. He is now an employee just like everyone else that works at the clinic and subject to the rules of FQHC compliance.

Role:  Professional with expertise in this field & I live in the area and have watched this clinic operate for years.
