Friends and family events

Friends and Family Day (*)

In the spring and fall, Oregon State Hospital (OSH) hosts a “Friends and Family Day" at the Junction City and Salem campuses. Friends and family can enjoy a meal with their loved one at no cost, learn more about the hospital, meet hospital staff, and participate in recreational activities.

Note: The fall 2020 event is canceled this year to help prevent the spread of COVID-19 among patients and staff. 

Friends and family can:

  • Tour the hospital
  • Meet hospital leaders

Friends, family and patients may enjoy:

  • Lunch
  • Hospital tours
  • Community organization information booths
  • OSH department information booths
  • Patient art show
  • Live music

 Activities provided during each event and at each location may vary. 

Family orientation (*)

We understand having a loved one admitted to OSH can be stressful. You might not know what to expect or how you can be involved in your family member's care. Several times a year, we host an orientation to provide information to friends and family of recently admitted patients. By attending an orientation, you will have the opportunity to ask questions and meet other family members. Click here for a recorded version of this orientation that you can watch at your leisure. 


 (*) Registration for these events is requested. Registration information will be posted on this website, on Facebook and in the OSH lobbies in Salem and Junction City.
