In the future, most OHSU outpatients may enter a new “front door” to OHSU.
On Thursday, a deal for OHSU to purchase two additional blocks of property in Portland’s South Waterfront District was finalized.
From an OHSU press release:
OHSU has no immediate plans for development on the parcels at this time, but it expects to construct new outpatient facilities on the land to both replace aging patient care areas on OHSU’s Marquam Hill Campus and in response to expanded need.
“The Center for Health and Healing, which is connected to the OHSU Marquam Hill Campus via the Portland Aerial Tram, has allowed us to move several outpatient clinics closer to downtown Portland,” saidMark Williams, associate vice president for campus development at OHSU. “Doing so has improved access for patients and reduced traffic congestion on Marquam Hill. We look forward to a future with additional OHSU patient facilities in South Waterfront.”
