SALEM HEALTH – Salem Campus
Salem Health is a Level II trauma center and one of the largest acute-care hospitals in Oregon with 454 acute-care beds. The hospital has 465 physicians on the active medical staff, representing 46 different specialties.

In 2010, Salem Health's Salem campus received the coveted Magnet award for excellence in patient care. Only 6 percent of U.S. Hospitals have this honor from the American Nurses Credentialing Center. In 2009, Salem Health became the first hospital in Oregon and one of just 22 hospitals nationwide to become a two-time winner of the Beacon Award for Critical Care Excellence from the American Association of Critical-Care Nurses. In May 2011, Salem Hospital became the only Oregon hospital to earn one of the first-ever sustained improvement awards given by U.S. Department of Health and Human Services for achievement in eliminating two serious hospital infections.
