Access to Care

Laurie's extensive track record demonstrates her unwavering dedication to improving access to healthcare services. In her second term, she plans to build upon this foundation by:

  • Establishing a Behavioral Health Stabilization Center to serve youth and adults. The Center will provide a much-needed alternative to an overwhelmed emergency room or jail for people experiencing a mental health crises.

  • Expanding services for overdose prevention, addiction treatment, and recovery programs.

  • Deploying mobile crisis response teams to deliver immediate care where needed, thereby saving lives and enhancing public safety.

  • Addressing service gaps arising from the closure of Eugene's only hospital and emergency room by streamlining processes and facilitating healthcare professionals' ability to serve the community.
