About

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

OHSU’s institutional external blog aims to highlight that breadth: 96,000 Square Miles will focus on the people of OHSU, the Oregonians we serve and the ripple effect of our work in Oregon and beyond.

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.

That’s the plain version; the short legal version is this: The opinions expressed on this site are the personal opinions of the original author(s), not OHSU, and the content is not meant to be an endorsement or representation by OHSU or any other party.

  1. 125 years is a long time! I wonder if OHSU is among the oldest of hospitals in the USA?

  2. Congratulations on 125 years of excellent service to the Pacific Northwest communities!

  3. 96,000 square miles – that’s awesome. We live only 23 miles from Coos Bay but I have not been able to find where the connection to OHSU Telemedicine is located.

    I have experience hosting WebEx video conferencing; is there any chance that this technology could be used for telemedicine? My wife has been a Type I Diabetic for 56 years and we have driven the 256 miles to OHSU for a consult, but at our age it takes 2 nights in a motel so we can not afford to come often enough.
