Salem Health Chief Medical Officer Dr. Ralph Yates addresses an audience of Oregon National Guard members and hospital staff at an awards ceremony at Salem Health Hospital in Salem on Dec. 7. The ceremony honored high-performing guard members for their work during the guard's Hospital Relief Mission that started in August 2021 and is ending this month.  The mission ordered by Oregon Governor Kate Brown assisted over 50 hospitals due to non-clinical staff shortages; the guard's numbers assigned to the hospitals reached approximately 1,500 workers on initial deployment. Towards the end, the mission has tapered down to more than 500 as hospitals find solutions to staffing shortages. Hospitals across the state have done similar ceremonies in appreciation of guard member hospital support.
