CHECK OUT ALL URGENT
Before you head to the emergency room,
consider the numerous urgent care centers
available in the Portland metro area. These
clinics and their skilled healthcare practitioners could be able to help you in a more
efficient and cost-effective manner.
There are few things more difficult than
seeing a child experience a serious illness or
medical condition. When it does happen,
it’s important that families have access to
the very best healthcare resources possible,
which is exactly what they get in the Port-
land and Vancouver area. The region is
home to two children’s hospitals that are
nationally recognized for the outstanding
work they do for local patients and their
Doernbecher Children’s Hospital
700 SW Campus Drive, Portland, OR 97239
Part of Oregon Health & Science University, Doernbecher is one of the nation’s
most recognized children’s hospitals,
known for its large number of pediatric
care specialists, inpatient and outpatient
surgical care and advanced treatment
methods—many of which trickle down
from the work of OHSU’s distinguished
medical researchers. The hospital also
has partnerships with medical centers and
clinics in every county in Oregon, allowing
the system to more effectively serve families throughout the state.
Some of the many services available through
Doernbecher include bone and joint care,
cancer and blood disorders, fetal therapy,
neonatal care, heart therapy, emergency care
and various surgical procedures—along with
treatment for just about every other illness a
child might experience.
However, Doernbecher’s reach extends
beyond just the patients it serves directly.
The institution is responsible for training
more than half of all the practicing pediatric
physicians in Oregon, and it has the only
pediatric residency program in the state.
It’s a highly competitive program—only
accepting 16 of the more than 600 medical
students who apply for it each year. This is
in addition to the wide range of professional
development opportunities Doernbecher
offers to practicing physicians throughout
the Pacific Northwest and beyond.
At this time, the researchers affiliated with
Doernbecher are involved in more than 80
clinical trials, and that’s just a portion of the
more than 4,000 research studies currently
underway within the greater OHSU
Randall Children’s Hospital
2801 N Gantenbein Avenue
Portland, OR 97227
Randall Children’s Hospital is part of the
Legacy Emmanuel system and serves as
another highly respected healthcare resource
for children and families in the region. In
fact, although it has served the community for decades, the hospital only recently
opened up its new facility in north Portland.
