Pain Services







Harney District Hospital

Pain service patients have often suffered with pain which has outlasted the normal healing period following an injury, or are living with pain related to conditions which have not improved with physical therapy or pain medication. Our Pain Services program provides treatment for patients who suffer from acute or chronic pain and partners with your care provider to treat and manage pain. Addressing pain issues with treatment improves mobility, comfort and quality of life for our patients. In some cases, pain management is also an effective way to maintain patient comfort until surgery can take place.

Medicare and other insurance plans often cover pain management services. Treatment can be preauthorized to ensure coverage.
