Salvation Army, OHSU to Open Homeless Infirmary

April 21, 2005

The Salvation Army and a Portland hospital announced Thursday that they're teaming up to open a new infirmary for homeless people.

The 15-bed facility will be in Old Town, where many services for the homeless are already located, and it will be staffed 24 hours a day.

Organizers say the fate of one homeless man prompted them to act.
