(Portland, OR) -- Legacy Health has announced it will close the Mount Hood Medical Center Family Birth Center in Gresham on March 17th. After the closure, patients will have to travel 17 miles to the Family Birth Center at Randall Children's Hospital in North Portland. All pregnant patients with the Legacy Medical Group Mount Hood Women's Health clinic can deliver at Randall Children's Hospital. The Mount Hood Women's Health clinic will continue to offer prenatal and gynecological care at the clinic in Gresham. Legacy says it's in a severe financial crisis as a result of the pandemic and needs to close the birth center to reduce costs. The Oregon Health Authority has yet not granted a waiver for the closure.
