My son's mother works for OHSU and Doernbecher Children's Hospital is where he receives much of his ongoing pediatric and other therapeutic care. I have personally met with my son's providers and call me impressed by the professionals who indeed are at the top of their game. And IMHO, the services he receives here are much better than what he previously enjoyed in the Bay Area.
The entire OHSU campus is also an exploration adventure within itself. You can drive up Marquam Hill to get here and even try a hiking trail through the back Campus. Better yet, take the Tram, take in the view, and avoid the parking hassles. While on the 9th Floor, wander through the suspended sky way to the VA hospital and return to read the history board about OHSU, which is on your right as you reenter the common area. Retreat into the new and ornate Mark Hatfield Research wing lobby, and then double back to Doernbecher. Take the elevator down to the Lobby, and experience the beautiful elevated art birds, the animal sculptures/Eternal Flame at the outside entrance, and the relaxing and comfortable indoor Commons area with a piano, Starbucks, natural light, and a view.
I'm also grateful knowing that my son feels really cool and confident as he can easily navigate this multiplex (including taking the Tram up from his mother's office and back down). My son is growing up healthy and happy, and I can thank Doernbecher Children's Hospital for helping make that possible.
