Legislative Session

OAHHS provides federal and state lawmakers with the tools they need to make informed decisions on issues that affect the health of Oregonians. OAHHS provides legislators information and educates legislators on the important role that Oregon's hospitals play in their communities and the many ways that state lawmakers can work with their local hospitals to support a healthier Oregon.

OAHHS’ legislative agenda is guided by the three key tenets of the Triple Aim: better patient experience, lower costs, and a healthier population. These principles inform the Association’s decisions to support or oppose legislation throughout legislative sessions, and provide a road map for developing the legislative agenda and introducing legislation on an annual basis.
