Growing with you in mind

Building now to prepare for the future

Salem Health has served the community since 1896 and we plan to continue providing the right care well into the future. Our community’s needs are growing. We want to be ready to meet that need. Here’s why we’re expanding:

  • Our region’s population will increase by 30% over the next 20 years.
  • The number of 60- to 80-year-olds, our seniors and people with complex health needs, is expected to grow by more than 50%.
  • Salem Health already runs near capacity, especially during flu season.
  • With one of the busiest hospitals on the west coast, we want patients and their loved ones to be able to easily find the services they need.

 


What you can expect to see in 2020

We’re expanding on the east side of Building A. This will help minimize the impact of construction on our neighbors. The new building will add 150 beds to our campus. We’re also redesigning walkways and driveways so it’s easier to get to the parking garage and the ER. Once construction is complete, we’ll begin seeing patients in the new building in July 2022.

Select the Parking tab above to learn about parking during our campus improvements.

Parking at Salem Hospital
