Community Benefit

Adventist Health’s mission statement of Living God’s love by inspiring health, wholeness and hope is coupled with a vision to transform the health experience of our communities through collaborative programs, community investments and community outreach. We are inspired by the healing ministry as represented by the life of Jesus Christ and believe we are called to live out our mission intentionally in the communities we serve. In the small towns, suburbs and inner cities we serve, we continue our journey to provide quality healthcare until every person made in God’s image has experienced the best health today, hope for tomorrow, and God’s love that endures forever.

housingHousing is Health Initiative

In 2017, Adventist Health Portland joined other area hospitals and health systems to jointly address East Portland’s health and housing needs. The bold and innovative project includes a new 51-unit family housing complex; a six-story, 153-apartment affordable housing building; and a two-story healthcare facility that will house a primary clinic, recovery and mental health services, pharmacy, 52 units of respite care, 10 units of palliative care unit, 90 units of transitional care housing, and 34 permanent homes. This initiative is a commitment from Adventist Health that recognizes that stable housing is critical to the improvement of health outcomes.
