Paving the Way for OHSU
Inspired legal work from attorney Scott Seidman helped pave the way for OHSU to operate as an independent public corporation. As part of a collaborative effort, Scott helped to draft and pass SB 2 into Oregon law with hard-won provisions that allowed OHSU to receive public funding as well as raise private capital. One of his key contributions in the process was to prepare a memo on antitrust immunity that became part of the bill’s legislative history. This work was a key building block in helping OHSU develop into the medical science juggernaut it has become.
