In an emergency, call 911
When a health emergency arises, Willamette Valley Medical Center is ready to serve you 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
To maintain our high level of quality care, even as our surrounding communities are growing, we have increased our Emergency Department (ER) bays from 13 to 20 and Intensive Care Unit (ICU) beds from 7 to 10. In addition, seven flexible beds were added to be used for ER or ICU.

“I’m so lucky to live in such a beautiful state!”
