Oregon’s East Multnomah County legislative delegation is calling on the Oregon Health Authority to deny a waiver request from Legacy Health that would close the Family Birth Center at Mount Hood Medical Center in Gresham.

The center is scheduled to stop service on March 17, leaving thousands of families with the need to travel greater distance to access health care options in Portland.
