About the Organization

Salem Health is the premier health care provider for Oregon’s Willamette Valley. Made up of Salem Hospital, West Valley Hospital in Dallas, and other clinics and services, we’ve provided pioneering medicine since 1896. We are proud to be a community-based, not-for-profit institution. Our board of trustees is made up of 15 volunteers who share a common belief: Our duty is to heal the sick and injured—not to answer to stockholders.

Salem Hospital is one of the largest of Oregon’s 62 acute care hospitals and operates the busiest emergency department in Oregon. It is a not-for-profit hospital, licensed for 454 acute-care beds.  The hospital is the Salem’s largest private employer, with approximately 4,600 employees. West Valley Hospital rounds out our numbers with an additional 180 employees.

Salem Health Medical Group (SHMG) is the business name for the group of medical providers who are employed by Salem Health directly.  This group is comprised of 350 individuals including 170 doctors and clinicians which provide services to the greater Salem area in 7 locations and 17 departments.  Care within SHMG includes primary care, urgent care, hospitalists, neurology, palliative care, physical therapy, psychiatry, sleep medicine, trauma and general surgery and women’s health.
