Ashland Community Hospital (Oregon)

Asante Ashland Community Hospital is a hospital in Ashland, Oregon, United States. Founded in 1907, it is part of the Asante Health System. In 2012, it explored an affiliation with Dignity Health,[1] with the latter stopping negotiations in October 2012 over some resistance to the plan.[2] On November 15, 2012, Ashland Community Hospital chose to partner with Asante, the owner of Three Rivers Medical Center and Rogue Regional Medical Center, to build a stronger financial base for the hospital.[3] Ashland's city council approved the transfer to Asante in June 2013.[4]
