Legacy Health, a nonprofit, locally owned organization based in Portland, Oregon, and serving Oregon and Southwest Washington, is well-known for its hospitals, the only health system covering the Portland-Vancouver area with multiple hospitals and a specialized children’s hospital.
Legacy's roots go back more than 100 years. Our two largest hospitals were founded (Good Samaritan in 1875 and Emanuel in 1912) by faith-based groups seeking to care for the growing city. As the decades went on, those two hospitals grew into larger health organizations. In 1989 they merged to create Legacy Health System.
What is now known as “Legacy Health” is one of the largest private-sector employers in the Portland metropolitan area.
Legacy Health places a high priority on building a culture that values diversity in how we work with each other, deliver care, partner with our community and in how we do business. Diversity is a moral, social and business imperative for us. If we do the right thing for our employees, our patients and communities, then we are doing the right thing for our business. At Legacy Health, our legacy is doing what's best for our patients, our people, our community, and our world.
I have been working at Legacy Health full-time (More than 10 years)
Legacy Health is a constantly changing, healthy organization. It's small enough to feel personal, yet large enough to offer career growth opportunities. Legacy has shown a demonstrable commitment to diversity.
Healthcare can be a tough industry. Financial pressures and community needs are great. Legacy employees work very hard to balance these realities.
Advice to Management
Stay true to the mission, no matter how tough things get.
I applied online. I interviewed at Legacy Health (Portland, OR).
Fairly quickly, I was contacted via email for an interview after a couple of weeks after applying. I was interviewed by a panel of employees and supervisor and the questions were behavior and experience based. By the end of the day I was contacted for a second interview with the manager. Followed was reference checking and was then extended an offer.
