Visitation resumes July 22 for patients on SRTF units

Visitation will resume July 22 for patients on Secure Residential Treatment Facility (SRTF) units.

Approved visitors may begin scheduling visits and are encouraged to schedule visits in advance.

At this time, patients on hospital level of care (HLOC) units may continue to sign up for video visits. Meanwhile, work continues on a plan to phase in the return of in-person visitation for other patients.  

To ensure a safe environment for patients, staff and visitors, screening and visitation processes, visitation schedule and visitor guidelines have been updated.

Visitors are encouraged to review more information about the changes, the new schedule and guidelines prior to their visit. 

Oregon State Hospital is suspending all in-person visits, effective 2 p.m., Friday, May 24.

We know this is disappointing and frustrating for you and your friend or family member at OSH.

The hospital had a significant incident of a visitor passing contraband to a patient. We are pausing in-person visits to review and adjust our procedures, to ensure patients and staff are safe during in-person visits.

We will keep the pause as short as possible. We will let you know when we are able to resume in-person visits, and if there are any new requirements.

We apologize because we know how important visits are to the well-being of patients and their friends and family.

Video visits remain an option, and we are happy to work with you to facilitate a video visit with your friend or family member.
