Gifts to the area of greatest need at Doernbecher Children's Hospital provide flexible resources to address the most pressing needs of the hospital and its programs.
For 80 years Doernbecher has been the place children and their families have turned for help, healing and hope.
Today Doernbecher is Oregon’s premier pediatric health center, providing the region’s widest range of children’s health care services. Doernbecher’s exceptional health professionals offer superb everyday care as well as some of the nation’s most highly specialized care, including advanced treatments for cancer, heart, kidney and brain disease, metabolic disorders, genetic abnormalities and complications from premature birth. They care for seriously injured kids in a dedicated pediatric emergency facility and in the state’s largest and best pediatric intensive care unit.
Doernbecher is the region’s major pediatric referral center. Children are referred from throughout Oregon, southwest Washington and beyond for advanced, family-centered care for conditions from cancer and trauma to rare infections.
So special is Doernbecher that a quarter of all physicians studying pediatrics in the United States apply to come here as interns and residents. Doernbecher trainees now make up 80 percent of the state’s practicing pediatricians. This concentration of talent brings remarkable benefit to the children of the Northwest.
