Every year, the Portland Business Journal asks more than 500 CEOs around Oregon and Southwest Washington to name their most admired companies in several different categories, including health care.

The 2014 results are in, and OHSU is proud to be rated first among its health care peers. Doernbecher Children’s Hospital was rated fourth most admired.

“This year is going to have a lot activity spikes, things that are still noteworthy 50 years from now,” noted OHSU President Dr. Joe Robertson.

Included in that activity is the immense challenge of — and incredible progress toward — raising $500 million to match the $500 million pledge of Phil and Penny Knight. OHSU currently has raised more than $440 million toward the goal.

OHSU, in conjunction with Portland State University and Oregon State University, also opened the $295 million Collaborative Life Sciences Building on the Willamette River. The building houses classrooms for OHSU’s Schools of Nursing and Medicine, as well as the entirety of the School of Dentistry.

Other accomplishments included receiving $30 million in funding from the Gates Foundation for HIV/AIDS research and forming an international partnership with Mahidol University medical school and Siriraj Hospital in Thailand.

“We are grateful for the support of Oregonians and humbled by the recognition of business leaders around the state,” said Dr. Robertson.

President Robertson is fond of saying that OHSU has a 96,000 square mile campus, serving Oregonians “from Enterprise to Coos Bay, from Portland to Klamath Falls.”

This blog aims to highlight that breadth. 96,000 Square Miles (96K for short) will focus on the people of OHSU, the Oregonians we serve and the ripple effect of our work in Oregon and beyond.
