This is the first of two posts on the OWEN Valley Health Campus. This is the third and final post from a project that I helped organize. I’m on the board of directors of the campus, and I’ve been a part of it since it began in April of 2009. You can read the first two posts about the campus and its history at www.owenvalleyhealthcampus.org/our-future.
The OWEN Valley Health Campus is a partnership between the St. Louis County Health Department, St. Louis County College of Osteopathic Medicine, St. Louis University’s Health Sciences Center, and St. Louis University School of Dentistry. It consists of several medical and dental colleges in St. Louis County, and has been operating for the past seven years. The goal is to train dentists to work in underserved communities in St. Louis County and the St. Louis metropolitan area.
The partnership is intended to provide training for dentists to address health issues in low-income areas. It also aims to boost the dental profession’s access to primary care professionals, through the use of a dental information program.
It’s a little bit of a stretch of the truth to use the word “college” to describe the University of Dentistry and Medical Center in Owen Valley, Missouri. But for now, it’s the University of Dentistry and Medical Center in St. Louis County.
The University of Dentistry and Medical Center in St. Louis County is one of two such institutions in the metro area. It was founded in 1887 and has been affiliated with the University of Missouri since 1894. This means that if you want to be a dentist in the metro, or one of the other hundreds of dental schools in the country, you can be a dentist in St. Louis county and have the same degree.
There’s a lot of debate here, and I’m not really sure what the best course of action is for the future. On the one hand, it’s certainly good to have a single health care campus in the metro. On the other hand, it’s not a terrible idea to have more than one. I know that I’m getting a bit of both on this one. On the one hand, I think it’s good for the industry to have a single campus.
It makes sense to have one campus because there are a few advantages to having a single campus. One, you can have the same degree for essentially the same price. Two, you can create a local workforce with the same skillset. Three, you can have a single campus that is more integrated into the larger health care system.
Its not like you need to have multiple campuses, but the benefits are still there. The biggest advantage over having a single campus is that you can have one campus that is a health care hub, a hospital, or an educational institution. A single campus would be the equivalent of a department of health, or an administrative unit, or a place where you have a clinical lab. You would have one campus that is a health care hub.
Also, the only significant difference between a single campus and an organization of hospitals and clinics is the way you look. A single campus is a single entity, but an organization of hospitals and clinics is a cluster of organizations that are all working towards the same goal, and so it’s not as easy to tell the difference.
The difference is that an organization of clinics or hospitals is a group of different offices working on different things at the same time. For example, a medical school is a group of medical schools all working off of the same idea.
