Doernbecher’s pediatric cardiologists and cardiothoracic surgeons offer unmatched expertise in healing the smallest hearts. Their clinical excellence is backed by groundbreaking research.

As home to the largest staff of pediatric cardiologists in the region, Doernbecher offers children advanced diagnosis and treatment options and provides statewide access to specialty services through outreach clinics in 11 communities.

OHSU is uniquely positioned to improve care and health outcomes for children with congenital heart disease. Together with colleagues specializing in adults with congenital heart disease, we can provide treatment and hope that few centers can.

Private support will help us serve more kids by expanding clinical programs, so that we can better integrate the imaging and treatment capabilities in a family-centered environment with improved facilities.
