Universal Health Services resubmits proposal for new Oregon hospital
Universal Health Services (NYSE:UHS) has filed a new bid to construct a $47 million psychiatric facility in the Portland, Oregon-area.
UHS’ bid comes three years after state officials initially rejected a previous bid by the Pennsylvania health care giant.
The new proposal — which is still not complete, according to the Oregon-based Lund Report — requests permission to build the facility in nearby Wilsonville.
That’s also where UHS initially hoped to its planned 100-bed hospital back in 2017, before its request was denied by Oregon’s hospital authority, whose reasoning at the time was that inpatient psychiatric treatment is costlier to the state than outpatient treatment.
