Samaritan Welcomes Nurse Midwife Eliza Cooley


Eliza Cooley, CNM, has joined Samaritan Obstetrics & Gynecology – Corvallis. As a certified nurse midwife, she provides gynecological and obstetric care.

She earned a bachelor’s degree at Mount Holyoke College and completed a master’s degree at Yale School of Nursing.

Cooley grew up in rural New Hampshire where options for health care were limited. She saw how that affected her community and decided to study women’s health care and become a nurse midwife.

“I want to be someone with the skills to expand access to affordable, respectful and evidence-based medicine,” she said.

Cooley values inclusivity, autonomy and building strong relationships with her patients.

“I strive to provide trauma-informed care,” she said.

Cooley chose to work at Samaritan for the positive work environment. As a newcomer to the Willamette Valley, she was drawn to the area’s outdoor access and being near her family and friends from the Pacific Northwest.

In her free time, she enjoys being active outdoors, running, mountain biking, backpacking, and doing yoga, cooking and baking.

She is accepting new patients and can be reached by calling 541-768-5300.
