About the Junction city site
The Oregon State Hospital will be part of the Junction City community and the Oregon Health Authority is committed to working collaboratively with local community members and stakeholders. The Department of Corrections (DOC) and OHA are working collaboratively on the Junction City facilities to ensure the agencies maximize all appropriate opportunities for shared efficiencies.
The design for the Junction City state hospital is based on a centralized treatment model within a secure perimeter as the means of providing comprehensive and consistent therapeutic opportunities to all its patients. In keeping with the Recovery Model for mental health, the design for the new facility and its campus was driven by programming needs to ensure a patient-first, patient-driven and patient-focused mental health system.
The Oregon State Hospital in Junction City will be co-located with two state prisons on a 90-acre campus. The hospital will include single and double occupancy patient rooms, staff offices, counseling and treatment rooms, and indoor and outdoor recreation areas.
The siting of both the Salem and Junction City hospitals has been an open and public process. The State has received letters of support from elected officials with an interest in the DOC-Junction City site. The agency did not receive any letters or comments protesting siting the hospital at that location.
