OHSU Doernbecher Children’s Hospital ranks among the top 50 children’s hospitals in the United States. It ranks 36th nationally for NIH-awarded pediatric research funding among children’s hospitals affiliated with an academic medical center, and is one of only 22 NIH-designated Child Health Research Centers in the country.
OHSU Doernbecher cares for tens of thousands of children each year from Oregon, Southwest Washington and around the nation, resulting in more than 175,000 discharges, surgeries, transports and outpatient visits annually.
Nationally recognized OHSU Doernbecher physicians and nurses provide a full range of pediatric care in the most patient- and family-centered environment, and travel throughout Oregon and southwest Washington, providing specialty care to more than 3,000 children at more than 150 outreach clinics in 15 locations. In addition, OHSU Doernbecher delivers neonatal and pediatric critical care consultation to community hospitals statewide through its state-of-the-art telemedicine network.
As Oregon’s only academic health center, we have lots of knowledge to offer. But social media is about sharing—it’s a conversation between you, your friends and family, and the doctors, nurses, students and scientists here at OHSU. We want to hear your comments and experiences: your stories will make this conversation richer for all of us.
Please be respectful of others in your comments and be aware that anything you post online—here or elsewhere on social media sites—can be read by anyone with internet access, even many years from now.
OHSU is a learning organization, so we also analyze information on the blogs to see what we can do better—what kind of information is most helpful or interesting for community members, or if there are ways we can improve the health services we provide. That’s part of our job as an academic health center, so please remember that as you comment or share stories.
Although we’re not responsible for the content of your comments, we try to make sure that comment threads are constructive for all users. To ensure that, we may edit comments for content, delete offensive comments and attacks, block offensive contributors and delete spam or suspected spam.
And remember: though the information we share online is about health, your health situation is unique—so don’t treat anything you read here as medical advice or as creating a patient-‐provider relationship. If you have a medical issue that requires advice or treatment, please contact your doctor— at OHSU or elsewhere—so you can be sure to have a confidential conversation about your health.
