Salem Health fast facts
Salem Health is the premier health care provider for Oregon’s Willamette Valley. Made up of the main campus in Salem, Salem Health West Valley in Dallas, and other clinics and services, we’ve provided pioneering medicine since 1896.
We are proud to be a community-based, not-for-profit institution. Our board of trustees is made up of 15 volunteers who share a common belief: Our duty is to heal the sick and injured—not to answer to stockholders.
As part of that commitment, we’ve sought out organizations that share our vision. For example, our relationship with Oregon Health & Sciences University gives our patients direct access to the advanced clinical services of an academic medical center.
