Smoky conditions continue to fluctuate as smoke from Chelan-area fires drifts into the Upper Valley. Several people visited our Emergency Department in the last few days with upper respiratory problems related to the smoke. We are handing out masks to anyone who stops by our main lobby, the emergency department or family practice clinic.


As the air quality changes throughout the day, please visit the state Dept. of Ecology's map often to check local smoke levels:

Cascade Cares: Get vaccinated, win a backpack

Is your family ready for school?

Clothes? Check.

Supplies? Check.

Shots? We’ve got you covered.

At Cascade Medical, we are giving away a backpack a week for students who receive a vaccination this month. We thought a contest might give an extra boost of motivation for kids reluctant to get a shot. The truth is, those shots are important for their health, and the health of our whole community.

Stories from Everest: A benefit for Nepal

on Monday, 08 June 2015.

Johnston climbing groupA powerful blast struck Emily Johnston from behind as she ran for cover on Mount Everest April 25. An earthquake shook loose a massive chunk of ice from a nearby peak and sent a shockwave of powder through Camp I. She steeled herself for the avalanche debris she was certain would follow. But the debris never reached Camp I. It tore through Everest Base Camp, where her team of 28 Sherpas and climbers had left just nine hours before.

Dr. Johnston, Cascade's Emergency Department Medical Director, is a longtime mountain guide with an incredible story to tell. Learn more about the avalanche and its aftermath through Dr. Johnston’s dramatic photos and personal stories 7 p.m. June 18th at Sleeping Lady Chapel Theater in Leavenworth.
