To our community

Our Community Impact Report provides an opportunity for us to celebrate our collective contributions and achievements in serving the community beyond clinical patient care. Highlighted throughout this report is just a sampling of the ways in which we were able to come together to support our patients, communities and each other.  

One example of this is Legacy Health’s Food Support Program. This program was developed as a direct result of patients sharing that food insecurity was a barrier to their health care. Legacy Health president and chief executive officer Kathryn Correia joined team members at one of our hospitals as they packed fresh food bags and delivered them to one of our clinics for distribution to patients

We are grateful to our patients and supporters for their partnership and trust as we work toward fulfilling our mission of good health for all. Please join us with pride as you review this year’s report.

 Our Community

Our efforts stretch beyond medical care –– we look for innovative ways outside of our hospitals and clinics to improve the health of all, and we partner with organizations in the communities to maximize our impact. 

Silverton Area Community Aid

Silverton Area Community Aid works to prevent homelessness and to stabilize housing through rental/mortgage and utility assistance. It also helps people secure housing after being unhoused.

Portland Workforce Alliance

Portland Workforce Alliance's Pathways to Health Careers Project aims to expand access and opportunities to underrepresented students from higher poverty schools with an interest in health care.

Adelante Mujeres

Adelante Mujeres provides holistic education and opportunities to marginalized Latine women and families.

Our People

Health comes from people caring for one another. Our people – nurses, doctors, customer service providers, administrators, and many more – are a collection of individuals who are integral to delivering health to those we serve.

Improving Workforce Diversity

Scholarships for four fourth-year medical students who are underrepresented minorities or come from disadvantaged backgrounds. The students are part of a rotation at Legacy Health’s internal medicine residency program sites. Each scholarship is $1,500 and can be used to help offset transportation, lodging and food expenses.

Pathways to Health Professions

Eight scholarships for pre-clinical students who are underrepresented minorities or come from disadvantaged backgrounds. The students will rotate through different Legacy Health sites. The goal is to train deserving students while furthering the diversity of Legacy as a whole.

Our World

Whether it’s reducing our impact on the environment, researching new cures, changing the way we deliver care or volunteering across the globe, we are doing our part for a healthier planet.


Legacy Health believes that what's good for the planet is also good for the patient. That’s why we’ve maintained a deep commitment to environmental sustainability for many years.  We have made a promise to reduce GHG emissions by 50% by 2030 and to achieve net zero by 2050.  Initiatives to help reach these goals include investments in renewable energy and energy conservation, recycling and waste management and environmentally preferable purchasing. In 2023, each Legacy hospital achieved national recognition for their efforts and received Practice Greenhealth's Partner for Change Award.


Community Recycling Events

Recycling: Behind the Scenes

Recycling: From Waste to Reusable


Scientists at the Legacy Research Institute work to advance medical knowledge so that it could potentially have a global impact. This approach is part of Legacy Health’s vision of playing an essential role to the health of communities, with the goal of fostering medical discoveries that can save lives and improve medical care.

Neuron Repair Research

We are in the third year of a groundbreaking three-year study that follows the development of new brain cells after a brain injury. This study seeks to find out whether brain cells generated after a brain injury are beneficial or harmful to cognitive recovery and whether normalizing the shapes of the cells born after a brain injury makes them beneficial. This would improve mental cognitive recovery.

Opioids and Cannabis Study

Opioid dependence is a major public health problem. We are launching a three-year study of buprenorphine, one of only two FDA-approved medications for opioid dependence that could help prevent opioid withdrawal and provide pain relief. It has never been studied but the results of this project could provide a novel and effective therapy for historically marginalized individuals with untreated pain.
