2015 ORS § 441.530¹

In order to provide the people of Oregon with access to adequate medical care and hospital facilities, the Legislative Assembly finds that it is necessary and desirable to authorize the creation in the several counties and cities of public authorities having the power to acquire, own, lease, sell and otherwise dispose of hospital facilities, and to authorize municipalities which create authorities to utilize those authorities to issue bonds and other obligations on behalf of such municipalities in order that the municipalities may provide hospital facilities.
