Silverton Hospital is a non-profit regional hospital located in Silverton, Oregon. Founded in 1917, the 48-bed facility moved to its current location in 1938. The hospital includes a Level IV trauma center, a 24-hour emergency room, a birth center, and diagnostic imaging.[1]

It is part of the Silverton Health medical group, which also includes five primary-care clinics in Marion County, Oregon, two specialist centers and the Woodburn Health Center, an urgent care and outpatient surgery facility in Woodburn, Oregon.

Since 2008, Silverton Hospital earned recognition each year with the Press Ganey Summit Award,[2][3][4][5] which is give to hospitals ranked in the top 5 percent for clinical performance and patient satisfaction.[6] The hospital reported in January 2015 that ten patients had been burned during surgeries due to unfiltered halogen lights in the operating room.[7] The parent Silverton Health entered into discussion with Legacy Health in 2015 that led to a letter of intent to affiliate with the much larger Legacy hospital system.[8][9]
