Friends and Family Day

One or two times per year, Oregon State Hospital (OSH) hosts a “Friends and Family Day" at the Junction City and Salem campuses. Patients and their friends and family can enjoy a meal at no cost, learn more about the hospital, meet hospital staff, and participate in recreational activities.

Past event activities have included:

  • Lunch
  • Hospital tours
  • Community organization information booths
  • OSH department information booths
  • Leadership staff meet and greets
  • Patient art show
  • Games and other recreational activities
  • Live music

 Activities provided during each event and at each location may vary. Events may be cancelled or postponed if the hospital is under medical restrictions because of communicable disease.
