Welcome Noel Orozco, Connell Clinic Manager
Join us in welcoming a Connell native to our team! Noel Orozco is our new Connell Clinic Manager!
Noel grew up in Connell and graduated from Granger High School in 2017. He then pursued a bachelor's degree from Eastern Oregon University (EOU), where he was also a wrestler, and graduated in 2021. He is now working on finishing his Master’s Degree from EOU.
He wasn’t sure what career path he would take when he started classes at EOU. Shortly after his first year of school, his dad passed away from serious health complications that placed him on life support. “I immediately knew that I wanted to pursue a career in healthcare to help those around me,” says Noel.
Throughout his college journey, he had other family members who also faced serious health conditions. One of them was his sister. “My older sister was diagnosed with stage four ovarian cancer, where she later passed away, and now my mother is facing health concerns.”
These difficult experiences confirmed that healthcare was the path he was supposed to take. “I want to help those going through what I have and help them during their difficult time.”
Noel couldn’t think of a better place to serve than at CBHA. “No patient ever goes unheard or uncared for here. I want to provide each patient with access to amazing health care no matter who comes through the door.”
He is excited to serve the community that shaped him to be the person that he is today. “This community is amazing. I love how close and supportive everyone is, and I’m looking forward to serving all of you.”
