The safety and well-being of patients and staff at Unity Center for Behavioral Health is our number one priority. We will provide regular updates on our work to remedy deficiencies identified by the Oregon Health Authority. Our staff and leadership care deeply about the people we serve and are committed to ensuring that people in our community living with mental illness have continued access to the care we provide at Unity Center.
