Take Action

Legislators in Salem and Washington, D.C. make strategic public policy decisions each year at the local, state, and federal levels that impact Oregon’s hospitals and health care systems – decisions that also determine the access and quality of health care provided to patients and the effectiveness of the workforce that provides the care.

Without the proper information, policy makers are at risk of making misguided decisions due to a lack of understanding of the true impact a piece of legislation will have. If legislators have the facts and understand how their decisions will affect our health care systems, patients, staff and community, we are more likely to reach our mission of fostering healthy Oregon communities.

This is why it is so important that our members of Congress and Oregon legislators hear from you, their constituents.

There are many ways to advocate for a healthier Oregon. View the action items below to learn how, with even just a few minutes, you can advocate for a healthier Oregon.
