Steele serves urgent need

NORTH BEND - Dean Steele's latest venture in medicine is what he thinks every community needs.
He opened up Meadowbrook Urgent Care last week in North Bend, offering immediate medical services he knows will be crucial to the Valley.
"Medical care is part of the backbone of a community," Steele said. "Just like churches, schools and libraries."
Meadowbrook Urgent Care came out of the Meadowbrook Clinic, which Steele co-founded in 1997 with Dr.'s Jennifer Rowe and Robert Brooks after the Snoqualmie Valley Hospital, where Steele and Brooks had been working, shut down. They ran an urgent care facility out of the emergency facility at the hospital until earlier this year when it was moved into an office building nearby and Brooks moved onto to another practice.
