In 1963, at a cost of $412,000, Forest Grove Community Hospital opened to the public. In 1967, the founders sold the hospital to a local business group. In 1976 it was sold again, this time to American Medical International, and the hospital was remodeled and updated. Two years later a new delivery area is opened that allows for the entire labor-delivery-recovery-postpartum process to occur in a single room.
Next, in 1982 a medical office building is built on the campus and the hospital is purchased by Tuality Community Hospital in neighboring Hillsboro, Oregon. With this purchase, the ownership group creates Fontus in 1983 as a healthcare organization. Then in 1990, the hospital is renamed Tuality Forest Grove Hospital. In 1995 a geriatric psychiatric unit is added to the facility, and in 1999 a dialysis unit is added. The maternity unit was discontinued in 1996 as part of a re-organization of the parent company.
The hospital has 48 beds and 25 full-time registered nurses. Tuality Forest Grove Community Hospital is owned and operated by Tuality Healthcare. The hospital includes a 22-bed psychiatric ward for geriatric patients.
