Providence Medford Medical Center

Providence Medford Medical Center is located in Medford, in Jackson County, midway between Portland, OR, which is about 273 miles to the north, and San Francisco, CA, which is 374 miles to the south. Just 27 miles from the northern California border, Interstate 5 links Medford to major population centers north and south. Highway 62 north is the main route out of the valley to Crater Lake and Central Oregon. Highway 140 links Medford to Klamath Falls and southeastern Oregon. The Medford population is 75,000 and the population of Jackson County is at 202,000 with the largest ethnic group in the Rogue Valley being persons of Hispanic or Latino origin.

The surrounding mountain ranges, which include the Cascades, the rugged Coastal Range and the Siskiyou Mountains, help to moderate Medford’s annual rainfall, which is generally less than 20 inches. Snow is common and heavy in the mountains, but light on the valley floor where it normally melts within a few hours. During the winter, the daily low dips into the middle 30s while highs in the summer average around 90.

The scenic beauty is balanced by a diverse offering of cultural events and options, including the world renowned Oregon Shakespeare Festival, the outdoor music forums by Britt Festivals, and Broadway and theater performances at the Craterian Theater.
