About the Oregon Health Authority:
The Oregon Health Authority (OHA) is at the forefront of lowering and containing costs, improving quality and increasing access to health care in order to improve the lifelong health of Oregonians. OHA is overseen by the nine-member citizen Oregon Health Policy Board (http://www.oregon.gov/oha/OHPB/) which is working toward comprehensive health and health care reform in the state.
OHA includes most of the state's health care programs, including Public Health, Health Policy and Analytics, Health Systems Division, and Oregon State Hospital. Incorporating the state's health care programs within one agency gives the state greater purchasing and marketing power to begin tackling the issues of cost, quality, and access to care.
They are absolutely committed to ongoing innovation in the delivery of services, and to recruiting, developing and retaining dedicated employees. The Oregon Health Authority strives to create inclusive environments that welcome and value the diversity of the people they serve. OHA fosters fairness, equity, and inclusion to create workplace environments where everyone is treated with respect and dignity regardless of race, color, religion, sex, disability, physical stature, age, national origin, sexual orientation, gender identity, marital status, political affiliation and any other factor applicable by state or federal law.
Their Mission: Helping people and communities achieve optimum physical, mental and social well-being through partnerships, prevention and access to quality, affordable health care.
Vision: A Healthy Oregon
Core Values: Service Excellence, Leadership, Integrity, Partnership, Innovation and Health Equity
