You are invited to an open house at Oregon State Hospital
Next Friday, July 29, Oregon State Hospital invites the public to explore the recently completed patient living and treatment wing called Trails. The public will be able to take self-guided tours from 1 to 4 p.m. and again from 5 to 8 p.m. This is an opportunity to see inside the hospital before patients move in next month. Those attending the tour will view patient bedrooms, common areas, a treatment mall, a courtyard, the kitchen and the dining hall.
Hospital staff will be on hand to answer questions and provide information about how the new hospital will improve patient treatment and recovery.
As construction on the new hospital continues, completed sections are opening in phases. Trails is the second living and treatment section of the new hospital to open. Patients will move in on August 16.
Trails is made up of nine units on three floors in three wings, called Leaf, Flower and Tree, with the capacity to serve up to 234 patients. Trails is the community rehabilitation program of the new Oregon State Hospital, where patients continue in their recovery process after their initial assessment and treatment in the admissions and stabilization program, called Harbors. Harbors opened in January.
Completion of the hospital is scheduled for end of 2011 with the last group of patients moving in early 2012.
