Legacy Health does much more than treat illness and provide care. We take an active role in the health of the community, providing services beyond health care to help achieve our mission of creating good health for our community and our world.

Obviously, we can't do it alone. One of the ways we have found is most effective is to support or collaborate with other groups that are working to improve the health of the community. Legacy works with dozens of groups across the community and country. See this list of community partners.

Here are our collaborations in specific areas.

Health care

  • NW Marrow Transplant Program, providing autologous bone marrow transplants in Oregon and Washington.
  • CROP (Columbia River Oncology Program) provides access to research protocols for patients in Oregon and Southwest Washington.
  • Project Access NOW connects low income uninsured patients in a network of physicians and hospital services in the metropolitan area. Services are provided at no cost to the patient.
  • Premium Assistance was established among metro area hospitals for individuals who are 139-200 percent of the Federal Poverty Level who qualify for federal tax credits under the Affordable Care Act, but are not able to afford the premiums and cost sharing of the federal exchange health plans. Their premiums are paid through Project Access NOW. 
  • Safety net clinics. Legacy provides  cash donations and grants, laboratory services in-kind, office space, program partnership  and/or representation on the board to safety net clinics in each hospital service area. Partnerships include:
