First, change your HTML to what I've attached below. You shouldn't use "&nbsp;" and "<br/>" to position elements, since you can do the same more reliably using CSS attributes like "margin", "padding", and "position".

Then try this CSS out and let me know if it's what you're looking for:

#header{  height: auto; width: 100%;}
#subHeader{ height: auto; width: 98%;}
.company_slogan {
      font-family: Tahoma, Geneva, sans-serif;
      font-size: 12px;
      font-weight: bold;
      color: #423d3d;
      width: 161px;
      margin-left: 10px;
      line-height: 20px;
      float:left;
      position:relative;
      top:3px;
}

.navigation
{
      height: 20px;
      line-height: 20px;
      clear:right;
}

.navigation ul{ text-decoration: none; list-style-type: none; display: block;  margin: 3px 0px 0px 0px; font-family: Tahoma, Geneva, sans-serif; font-size: 12px;}
.navigation li{ float: left; width: 50px; text-align: center;}
.navigation li a{ text-decoration: none; color: #000;}
.navigation li a:hover{ color:#90b912;}
.navigation li span{ color:#90b912;}
.navigation ul .color{ color: #90b912;}
<div id="header">
	<div class="image_logo">
		<img alt="logo" class="style3" src="Images/logo_rg.png" />
	</div>
    <div class="company_slogan">
        DHR Physician Issues Log
	</div>
	<div class="navigation">
		<ul>
			<li><span>Home</span></li>
			<li class="color">|</li>
			<li><a href="default.aspx" title="About US">Help</a></li>
			<li class="color">|</li>
			<li><a href="#" title="Contact">Contact</a></li>
			<li class="color">|</li>
			<li><a href="#">Exit</a></li>
		</ul>
	</div>
</div>
