Frequently Asked Questions about the Legacy Mount Hood Medical Center Family Birth Center Closure
Legacy Health announced on Jan. 27 that we have made the difficult decision to stop delivering babies at the Legacy Mount Hood Medical Center in Gresham. The date for that change is tentatively set for Friday, March 17, 2023. Pregnant people who arrive at the emergency department will be transferred to Randall Children’s Hospital at Legacy Emanuel or other local hospitals.
Our plan is to close the Mount Hood Family Birth Center, pending approval by the State of Oregon. We will be working with the state to review the situation and seek their guidance on our plan for a temporary or permanent closure.
