Every day, Oregon hospitals reach beyond their walls to help make the community a healthier place.
In 2014 alone, Oregon’s community hospitals provided nearly $1.9 billion in free care, wellness programs, research and other community health activities.
These valuable services they provide include health fairs, patient and family support groups, and rides to appointments. And they don’t stop there. They offer services all the way to neighborhood revitalization, like community gardens and housing improvements. They help pave the way for new and innovative treatments through research. And they foster a new generation of caregivers through medical education.
We hope you’ll take time to learn about these important activities. Hospitals are proud of what they do to improve their communities. They don’t just heal you when you’re sick; they work to make sure you’re healthy.
