( — May 14, 2019) Bend, OR — The Center Orthopedic & Neurosurgical Care & Research is pleased to announce the addition of Rich Ombrembowski, PA-C to our orthopedic team. After three years in Medford, Oregon working as an orthopedics physician assistant, he is excited to make the transition to Central Oregon to continue his career in orthopedics, enjoy the outdoors, and foster new connections with the community.

 Rich has always had a passion for science, sports, and outdoor activities. He grew up competing in hockey, baseball, and soccer in the Great Lakes region of the Midwest, while spending much of his free time outdoors and camping. While on a humanitarian trip to Honduras as an undergraduate student, he assisted in the treatment of a young girl’s fracture. From then on he knew he wanted to pursue a career in medicine, specifically orthopedics, to help others not only recover from their injuries, but find strength and confidence while doing so.

Rich received his medical education at Yale University School of Medicine. He will be working closely with the hand and upper extremity orthopedic surgeons and looks forward to practicing at The Center with an esteemed group of highly trained colleagues with long-standing ties to the community.
