Overview

OHSU Health Hillsboro Medical Center, formerly Tuality Healthcare has always been committed to our community. It's a part of how we care for each other, and part of what makes this place different.

We had a humble start in 1918 when an enterprising woman named Minnie Jones Coy started a small six-bed hospital in her Hillsboro home. She brought together independent physicians under one roof to treat the sick and provide a safe place for mothers to give birth. A century after Minnie made her commitment to the people of Hillsboro, her vision continues as we provide world-class health care to patients.

As part of our affiliation with OHSU Health, we've changed our name to Hillsboro Medical Center. This new moniker reflects our expanded services and clinic locations that provide patients living in Hillsboro and western Washington County greater access to primary and specialty care.
