OSH Gift Giving - Nov. 2023 update

Patients’ families have been asking how they can stay connected to their loved ones during this holiday season. We are unable to provide a catalog of holiday gifts for family members to purchase like we did last year. Friends and family can instead send money to be added to their loved one’s trust accounts. This allows patients, who have approval, to purchase special items for themselves through the hospital’s ordering processes while making sure those items meet the hospital’s unique safety and space requirements.
We are exploring ways for families to be more involved during future holiday seasons. 
To add money to a patient’s trust account you can send a check or money order in their name to: 

Patient Trust Department
Oregon State Hospital
2600 Center St NE
Salem, OR 97301

Once received, hospital staff will deposit the money into the patient's account. Please be aware that when sending a personal check, it can take up to 10 business days for the funds to be available. If a patient does not yet have an account, hospital staff can help them open one.
