Lake Oswego, Ore. – September 23, 2022 – Becky Hultberg, President and CEO of the Oregon Association of Hospitals and Health Systems, released the following statement on the emergency board decision to pass funding requests from OHA and DHS to help with the capacity crisis in our community hospitals:   


“On behalf of Oregon’s community hospitals, I want to express gratitude to the Legislature’s Emergency Board, which approved the OHA and DHS requests for emergency funds. This funding will help relieve the capacity crisis in our hospitals, preserving access to lifesaving care.
