Governor Kitzhaber's proposed budget calls for the closure of fully functioning branches of the Oregon State Hospital in Pendleton and Portland and the building of a new locked psychiatric facility in tiny Junction City (23 miles outside of Corvallis). While wards in the newly built hospital in Salem stand empty, a new hospital, in a small town without resources, is unnecessary and unwanted by the mental health community. Operations costs may reach hundreds of millions over decades of unwanted and unwarranted treatments.
