    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. For more information, visit

    To my fellow East Portland Chamber Members:

    You know that I’ve been working on the Upper Garden project and particularly the Aerial Treewalk at Leach Garden for seven years.  I do this in the spirit of Lilla and John Leach who created their gardens and home and gave them to the residents of Portland.  They wanted to ensure that new generations of visitors would delight in discovering the plant world in a magical place of beauty and respite.

    The Garden opened to the public 34 years ago in East Portland. But the Leach estate was limited in its ability to welcome large numbers of visitors. With the future in mine, land has been acquired in anticipation of this project. Now we are ready to meet today’s challenge--We need your help to build the Aerial Treewalk, a unique feature in the region where anyone can become truly immersed in nature and the outdoors, safely and accessibly.

    So I am writing to ask that you join me—however you can—to make this dream project a reality.  We have just launched a crowdfunding campaign to give everyone in our community a chance to make this happen for all of us—Portlanders and visitors, young and old, newly-arrived or longtime residents.  The new facilities and gardens at Leach will insure that it continues to be a place like no other.

    Will you do two things on behalf of the Garden?   Will you click on the link to the crowdfunding page and make a contribution?  Leach Garden Friends has successfully raised over $ 1 million toward this project.   We are confident we will break ground and build the Treewalk and new gardens midyear in 2018.

    Secondly—and maybe most important—will you forward this email to your circle of friends and family and encourage them to take a look at the crowdfunding link?   Even if they don’t know about Leach, I think they will be intrigued because of the unique story of the Leaches and the character of this unexpected gem in the urban landscape. 

    That’s where you can make a difference—every dollar or dime you give to the crowdfund will help us achieve the new vision for Leach. 

    Join me today by visiting to donate.  Click on the “Fund this Project” on the bottom or right hand side of the page to give.

    Again, just as importantly, please share and post on Facebook, email or wherever you find an interested ear to help spread the word! This crowdfund is our chance to transform a one-of-a-kind garden retreat into a more accessible and enchanting community resource for all of us.

    Warm regards,

    David Porter
