News Release
Oregon Hospital Trade Association Rebrands as Hospital Association of Oregon - 09/19/23

Formerly known as the Oregon Association of Hospitals and Health Systems, the organization
representing hospitals statewide has adopted a new name and logo as a reflection of its
commitment to quality care and leadership that will support Oregon's communities for
generations to come.

Lake Oswego, Ore. — The Oregon Association of Hospitals and Health Systems is now the
Hospital Association of Oregon, ushering in an era of vocal advocacy that better reflects the
organization's commitment to the communities served by each of its 62 member hospitals.

“Our mission is to ensure that all Oregonians have high-quality, dependable hospitals in their
communities today, tomorrow and for decades to come,” said Hospital Association of Oregon
President and CEO Becky Hultberg. “We are committed to doing our part as an innovator,
convener, active listener and tireless advocate to ensure that when our communities need care,
our hospitals are ready.”

Building on an historic 2023 legislative session where the trade association collaborated with
the Oregon Nurses Association and other groups to invest in Oregon’s health care workforce,
the Hospital Association of Oregon will continue seeking legislative solutions in Salem and in
Washington, D.C. that advance the resources, training and support hospitals need to provide
patients with the care that they deserve.

The rebrand marks the Hospital Association of Oregon’s next step in its commitment to foster
healthier communities across the state through advocacy, communication and education.

“Our hospitals are employers, funders of community projects and community spaces, all while
providing essential health services to generations of Oregonians,” Hultberg said. “When our
hospitals are strong, our communities win.”
