Health concerns heat up in Portland area

There was a time when a summer heat wave in the Northwest was like a winter cold snap or a spring rain, an irritating but innocuous blip on the meteorological calendar.

Nursing Program Gives Immigrants Path Out of Poverty

Many American hospitals encourage patients to fill out a comment card about the service they received. Iryna Zhgya gets a lot of these comments. She keeps them in a binder at her home and enjoys looking through it, reminiscing.

She pulls out a comment card from one especially difficult patient and reads, “Iryna is an excellent RN, and she knows how to be firm but yet gentle.”

Zhgya learned those skills back in Ukraine.

Meeting our health care challenge

Today more than ever, we need a strong and efficient health care system. Nothing is more important that the health and welfare of our citizens, especially the most vulnerable. But Oregon’s health care system is not effective or sustainable. The serious nursing shortage combined with the rise of for-profit health care has affected how well we can care for our patients.

The cost of health insurance premiums has increased dramatically over the past decade. We must find a way to improve access to affordable health care coverage. Especially in the current economic crisis, Oregon must invest in the state’s health care system to provide services that promote preventive and preliminary care.

State hospitals face $400 million shortfall

From Staff Reports
According to a recent press release from the Oregon Association of Hospitals and Health Systems, a recently completed financial analysis determined that Oregon hospitals will face almost $400 million in losses over the next two years under Gov. Ted Kulongoski’s 2009-11 budget proposal.

His recommended budget proposes a new, 4 percent tax on hospital services, with the tax revenue and corresponding federal match being used to cover all of the costs of providing insurance coverage through the Oregon Health Plan to 100,000 adults.

At the same time, the governor proposes to reduce Medicaid payments to Oregon hospitals by almost 10 percent.  The study was conducted for the Public Policy Committee of the hospitals association, by Health Management Associates, an independent national research and consulting firm specializing in complex health care program and policy issues. 

Health Management’s analysis found Oregon’s 25 largest hospitals will lose more than $200 million annually under the proposed tax, coupled with reduced Medicaid payments.
