Salem gets it’s name from an Indian word meaning "resting place". Located in the middle of the Williamette River Valley and beautifully situated in some of the country’s most breathtaking scenery, its easy to see why it was named so.
But Salem is not just about beauty, it is filled with opportunity; to ski, hike, sail, shop, eat, be entertained and to work. Should your next travel assignment take you to Salem, your days off can be filled with all of Salem’s opportunities, but your days at work can be filled with opportunity as well. Clinical research, bariatric medicine, new treatment options in physical and occupational therapy and a high risk obstetrics unit can be found at the leading Willamette Valley’s Salem Hospital.
