    The East Portland community has a new fitness trail!

    Adventist Health Portland LivingWell Fitness Trail runs the perimeter of the scenic Adventist Medical Center campus providing a fun way to gain the benefits of physical activity in a beautiful natural setting.

    The one-mile outdoor fitness trail, and other locations in and around the campus, incorporate a series of QR code trail signs.

    Guests may choose to use their Smartphone to scan a QR code at each station to gain immediate access to brief video exercise demonstrations on strengthening the core, lower body, upper body, and/or on improving flexibility. Body weight provides the perfect resistance, so no extra equipment is needed – other than a Smartphone.

    • Walking boosts immune function.  A study of over 1,000 men and women found that those who walked at least 20 minutes a day, at least 5 days a week, had 43% fewer sick days than those who exercised once a week or less.
    • Outdoor activity boosts mood. A study at the University of Queensland, Australia, found that those who exercised outdoors on a regular basis had higher levels of serotonin, a hormone that regulates mood, than those who mainly exercise indoors. They also had higher levels of endorphins, the “feel good” rush that occurs after exercising, especially in green, outdoor environments.

    A reverse mortgage is a loan that must be re-paid. Borrower retains title and the loan is due and payable when the last borrower no longer lives in the home as their primary residence.

    One Borrower must be 62; Borrowers must pay taxes, insurance and maintain the home. Failing to pay these amounts may cause the reverse mortgage loan to become due immediately and may subject the property to a tax lien or to possible foreclosure.

    The lender may charge an origination fee, mortgage insurance premium, closing costs and servicing fees, if applicable; all or any of which may be added to the loan balance.

    The loan balance grows over time and interest is charged on the outstanding balance. Interest on a reverse mortgage is not deductible from the person’s income tax return until the borrower repays all or part of the reverse mortgage loan. Not tax advice, please consult your tax professional.

    When the loan is due and payable, some or all of the equity in the property with the reverse mortgage no longer belongs to borrowers, who may need to sell the home. Family members may refinance or otherwise repay the loan, with interest, from other sources.

    PORTLAND, Oregon Adventist Health Portland and OHSU today announced a final agreement to integrate their clinical activities and services in the Portland metropolitan area through an affiliation that becomes effective Jan. 1, 2018.  

    This agreement makes OHSU and Adventist Health Portland part of the same Portland metropolitan Health System, bringing Adventist’s health care enterprise that includes a 302-bed medical center, 34 medical clinics and home care and hospice services in the Portland-Vancouver metro area.

    “Our affiliation brings together the strength of a respected community hospital system in the metro Portland area with that of the only academic health center in Oregon,” said OHSU President Joe Robertson, M.D., M.B.A.  “The focus Adventist Health Portland has put on quality care and preventive medicine in its community is especially well-regarded and complementary to OHSU’s mission.”  

    Under this affiliation, OHSU and Adventist Health Portland will share a bottom line and operate as a unified system. The affiliation applies to OHSU’s Portland-area clinical services and activities, and Adventist Health Portland, which includes Adventist Health Portland Medical Center and its affiliated clinics, centers and services. The agreement does not include OHSU’s research and education missions, nonmetro clinical activities and services, and the other 19 Adventist Health hospitals in the western United States. Each organization will retain its existing hospital licenses, capital assets and employees.

    “We look forward to joining the OHSU family and expanding our focus on impacting lives with high-value, quality whole-person care,” said Joyce Newmyer, president of Adventist Health Pacific Northwest Region. “We are confident this affiliation will have a positive impact on patients throughout the state.”

    A board of managers comprising representatives from each organization will be created to oversee the system. David Russell, president of Adventist Health Portland, will report to Mitch Wasden, Ed.D., executive vice president and chief executive officer of OHSU Healthcare as well as to Newmyer. Adventist Health Portland chief medical officers will report to Russell and John Hunter, M.D.,F.A.C.S., Chief Clinical Officer, OHSU.

    Each entity will continue to maintain their individual mission and culture but will together transform access and the delivery of health to Oregonians through a unified clinical enterprise and shared brand experience.

    “We are excited to provide an integrated delivery system that will improve access, create better outcomes and control costs by coordinating care for patients across a spectrum of their health needs,” said Wasden.

    About OHSU:

    OHSU is the only academic health center in Oregon and is nationally distinguished as a research university dedicated solely to advancing health sciences. This singular purpose allows us to focus on discoveries that prevent and cure disease, on education that prepares physicians, dentists, nurses and other health professionals for the evolving health care environment, and on patient care that incorporates the latest advances. Based in Portland, we are one of Oregon’s largest employers, operate the top-ranked adult and children’s hospitals in the state, and secure competitive research funding of more than $400 million. As a public organization, we also provide services for the most vulnerable Oregonians and outreach to improve health in communities across the state.

    About Adventist Health:

    Adventist Health—Portland is a faith-based, not-for-profit health care network consisting of a 302-bed medical center, 34 medical clinics and home care and hospice services in the Portland/Vancouver metro area. Adventist Medical Center Portland is ranked in the top 5 percent of hospitals nationwide for patient safety.

    We are part of Adventist Health, a faith-based, nonprofit integrated health system serving more than 75 communities on the West Coast and Hawaii. Our compassionate and talented team of 33,300 includes more than 24,600 employees; 5,000 medical staff physicians; and 3,700 volunteers working together in pursuit of one mission: living God’s love by inspiring health, wholeness and hope. Founded on Seventh-day Adventist heritage and values, Adventist Health provides care in 19 hospitals, more than 280 clinics (hospital-based, rural health and physician clinics), 13 home care agencies, seven hospice agencies and four joint-venture retirement centers. Together, its team is inspired to transform the health experience of our communities, with its unique focus on physical, mental, spiritual and social healing.
