About Legacy Health System

Legacy Health System strives to create a legacy of positive health in the Portland/Vancouver metropolitan area. A not-for-profit provider of health care services in Oregon and Washington, the health system operates about half a dozen hospitals, including  Legacy Emanuel Hospital and Legacy Good Samaritan Hospital, all founded by a variety of secular organizations. Legacy Health has more than 1,000 total beds and its facilities provide such services as acute and critical care, behavioral health, and outpatient and health education programs. It also operates home health, hospice, and research facilities; emergency transportation helicopters; and a number of regional clinics and labs.

Strategy

The company is focused on improving its existing hospitals. It added pediatric and acute care capacity at the Emanuel Hospital, with a new, nine-story Randall Children's Hospital facility which opened in 2012. Legacy Health completed emergency, outpatient surgery, and clinical laboratory expansion efforts at its Mount Hood Medical Center in 2010, and in 2011 it opened a new patient floor at the Salmon Creek Medical Center, adding about 50 beds.

Legacy Health is also concentrating on opening new general care and specialty clinics, partly through partnerships with area physicians. The addition of new clinics is designed not only to service the needs of small communities, but also to ensure that referrals from area doctors help to sustain its nearby hospitals.

Company Background

The company was founded through the 1989 merger of HealthLink and Good Samaritan Hospital.

pay is decent
Imaging Support Specialist, Tualatin, OR - July 2, 2015
they pay you enough to keep you here but not enought to make you want to stay. if there is a sick call they wont call another person in to fill the sick call spot they just have us be short all day. that puts more work and stress on the few staff members that do work. getting time off is a pain unless you submit your request 6 months in advance.
