About the Columbia Basin Health Association (CBHA). CBHA has been around since the early 1970’s. We started as a small group that recognized we had an underserved migrant population that was growing rapidly and in need of healthcare access. Our communities are in rural settings, Othello, Connell and Mattawa, WA.   Although we served 35,000 patients last year and draw from a large agriculture population, Othello, WA (Headquarters) has approximately 8,000 community members.  It’s a great area to raise a family. Our school system in Othello, WA supports 4 K-6th grade elementary schools, a 7th to 8th grade middle school and two high schools. 50% of our community members are typically 18 yrs. and younger. Othello is far enough from the big cities to enjoy the great outdoors such as fishing, hiking and camping, yet we are close enough to metro areas for shopping, arts, restaurants and other family outings.  We truly have the best of both worlds!
