CELEBRATING VINEYARD WORKER HEALTHCARE THE OREGON WAY
Since 1992, more than $15 million has been raised through ¡Salud! The Oregon Pinot Noir Auction. 100% of the proceeds raised support ¡Salud! Services, a program of OSHU Tuality Healthcare and the Tuality Healthcare Foundation dedicated to providing healthcare services and outreach to Oregon vineyard workers and their families. Through mobile wellness clinics, year-round patient navigation and support, ¡Salud! Services is a trusted ally for these families in time of need.
MORE THAN 35,000 VINEYARD WORKERS LIVE AND WORK IN THE WILLAMETTE VALLEY
Behind every bottle of Oregon Pinot Noir, there are vineyard workers: waking early in the morning, working in hot and cold, and tending to the vines by hand. Vineyard work follows the rhythm of nature, and most vineyard workers are short-term employees making them ineligible for health insurance year-round. When a heath issue arises, small or large, finding a “quick” and “easy” solution is not so apparent. Many workers are best served in a language other than English, live on limited budgets and cannot afford to take time off to seek medical help.
OUR UNIQUE COLLABORATION
The relationship between vintners and physicians, united in their mission to benefit this essential workforce, is unique to Oregon. No other state in the country has such an effective and far-reaching program to support the seasonal worker population. This progressive approach by the Oregon wine industry has enabled ¡Salud! to access workers at the worksite, as well as to identify those who are truly seasonal.
