Welcome to the Heminger Health Library at Confluence Health!
The Health Library serves the health information needs of healthcare professionals and community members of North Central Washington. The library provides timely access to the health information resources people need, empowering providers, patients and community members to make informed health decisions.
Library services are available to physicians, Confluence Health employees, local healthcare providers, and the general public.
A large portion of the library's electronic journal subscription cost is covered by a generous annual donation from the physician membership of the
Chelan-Douglas County Medical Society.
This website was made possible by the
Central Washington Hospital Foundation.
Site Access Expansion
Providers and staff at all Confluence Health sites now have access to the Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews, one of the most trusted resources for evidence-based research. Access to full text articles from the New England Journal of Medicine is now available at all Confluence Health sites, as is access to the Lippincott Williams & Wilkins Total Access Collection, which offers nearly 300 biomedical titles. Please take advantage of this expanded access, and feel free to contact the librarian with any questions you may have. Check back in the coming months for more exciting changes to Heminger Health Library access and services!
Because of budgetary limitations and an anticipated discontinuation of service on the part of Elsevier in 2014, effective December 8, 2013, the institutional subscription to MDConsult is cancelled. Please contact the librarian with questions and/or assistance with locating full text articles.
