St. Charles Health System, Inc. (SCHS) is a four-hospital network and healthcare company in Central Oregon. Headquartered in Bend, the system owns and operates the St. Charles medical centers in Bend, Redmond, and Madras, plus leases and operates Pioneer Memorial Hospital in Prineville. SCHS is a private, not-for-profit Oregon corporation and with more than 3,000 employees it is the largest employer in the region.[1]


Then Mountain View Hospital in Madras entered into an agreement with SCHS to provide management services for the hospital in 1998.[2] In 2001, Redmond's Central Oregon District Hospital became a part of the system, with St. Charles then taking over the operations of Prineville's hospital in 2008.[2] Mountain View Hospital then merged into the system in 2013 and became St. Charles - Madras.[2]
