New Hospital Proposed to Serve the Needs of the Greater Willamette Valley

Oregon is in the midst of a mental health crisis. Studies indicate Oregon needs an additional 130 inpatient beds in order to meet current demand for crisis mental health services, and that number continues to grow.

Willamette Valley Behavioral Health Hospital (WVBH) will help meet demand with our proposed 100-bed behavioral acute care hospital with outpatient services to be located in Wilsonville, Oregon. The hospital will serve adolescents, adults and older adults with trauma informed and specialized inpatient and outpatient services. These services will be available to all Oregonians presenting for care, regardless of insurance status or income.

The proposed hospital is awaiting approval from the Oregon Health Authority, which requires certain health facilities, like hospitals, to receive a Certificate of Need (CON) from the department. Once approved, construction of this new hospital can begin. When open, community members will be able to access the following services:

  • Inpatient Mental Health Services for Adolescents, Adults and Older Adults
  • Crisis Stabilization Services for Adults
  • Services for patients in crisis on the autism spectrum
  • Women-focused programs
  • Military-specific programs
  • Pain management, Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT) and SUD Treatment
  • Partial Hospitalization and Intensive Outpatient programs for mental health and substance use

To help bring these services to Oregonians, we need your support for our CON application. Voicing your support for this facility and the important role it will play in meeting the needs of our community around mental health, homelessness, addiction/recovery and the criminal justice system.  You can do this by submitting a letter of support in favor of the project to the director of the Oregon Health Authority, Patrick Allen, and to the Certificate of Need committee once a hearing has been scheduled to evaluate the application.
