Samaritan Library Gateway

Welcome to Samaritan Health Services' Medical Library Gateway. Here you will find a wealth of information at your fingertips with just a click of the mouse; all in support of our organization's mission of “building healthier communities together.”

The mission of the hospital-sponsored web portal is to support the clinical management, research, and educational information needs within our network of Oregon hospitals, physicians and senior care facilities serving the needs of the people in the mid-Willamette Valley and the Central Oregon Coast.

As you use our website and find it useful, please link to us so that others may benefit.

It is our belief that empowered people can better manage personal health with access to a wide range of comprehensive, authoritative, trusted health information. Information presented does not necessarily represent or imply approval or recommendation by Samaritan Health Services, your doctor, or other health care provider.

While we are here to assist you in finding information, only your health care professional is qualified to give you a medical opinion. Use this information as a communication conduit between you and your clinician.

Your Library Card

The first few weeks of our ClinicalKey trial have wrapped up! If you have tried it, please Take Our Survey and tell us what you think!

If you haven't, start by using the Complete User Guide or the Quick Reference Card to help you begin to master the full capabilities and benefits ClinicalKey has to offer.

With ClinicalKey, you have access to the same quality content of both MDConsult and FirstConsult but with expanded Specialty Collections on a search platform making it faster than ever. Your access to ALL Elsevier medical and surgical journals (over 500) and ALL Elsevier medical and surgical reference books (over 1000), is substantially more than today's MDConsult!

Overall, ClinicalKey is uniquely designed to seamlessly integrate into the workflows of physicians providing fast, clinically relevant answers from topic overview to in-depth specialty information. The speed, experience, and content of ClinicalKey can help improve patient outcomes, making physicians more efficient in caring for patients, and helping them stay current in the latest advances in their field.
