Voters overwhelmingly approve measure to fully fund the Oregon Health Plan
Lake Oswego, Ore. -- November 4, 2020 -- Becky Hultberg, President and CEO of the Oregon Association of Hospitals and Health Systems, released the following statement on voter approval of Measure 108:
"Because of the commitment of community hospitals across our state, Oregonians overwhelmingly passed Measure 108, providing critical revenue to fully fund the Oregon Health Plan. Community hospitals drove a winning strategy that included a coalition of more than 270 health care organizations, nurses, doctors, businesses, organized labor and community-based organizations. Together we invested in a comprehensive campaign structure that kept our opponents out of the race and on the sidelines. Our victory shows that from securing funding for vital health care services, to combating the COVID pandemic, to helping our neighbors in need during the fire season, hospitals will always stand up for the health of our communities."
