OFSN wishes to send our sympathies to the family of Sen. Alan Bates, who passed away last Friday.
Sen. Bates will be remembered for his role in the Senate and member of the Joint Special Committee on Health Care Transformation. This committee provided the framework and championed for the creation of the Coordinated Care Organizations in Oregon.
Sen. Bates was passionate about health care in Oregon and made his life work to ensure that all Oregonians could receive access to quality health care, both as a Senator and a practicing physician.
