In what would be a rather unusual relationship between a hospital system and a medical school, Tuality Healthcare and Oregon Health & Science University (OHSU) plan a partnership in which a new OHSU management company would manage Tuality’s clinical operations.
“The affiliation will integrate the clinical enterprises, bringing the strength of Tuality’s deep community relationships together with OHSU’s distinct role as a provider of highly complex and advanced specialty care,” the organizations said.
Meanwhile, OHSU and Salem Health want to merge their clinical operations under an integrated health system.
OHSU hosts Oregon’s medical-education programs, the Doernbecher Children’s Hospital and its general hospital in Southwest Portland.
Tuality Healthcare, a nonprofit, runs hospitals in Hillsboro and Forest Grove, and physician and outpatient clinics in Washington County. It has a staff of more than 1,200, including a medical staff of 300 clinicians.
