What We Do

To ensure that Oregonians have wide access to the health care they need, and that their health care will be safe, of high quality, and meet or exceed state and federal standards. This mission is accomplished through state licensure and federal Medicare certification of health facilities, providers and suppliers.
Protect the rights of patients receiving health care through monitoring to ensure compliance with standards set forth in state rules and federal regulations.
