OHSU Center for Ethics in Health Care
Integrating the science of healthcare with the art of compassion.
Never before has so much been possible through the wonders of modern medicine.
And never before has it been so critical to bring to these spectacular cures and hopeful possibilities an ethical perspective of compassion, respect and justice to ensure that such care is delivered wisely and well.
Since 1989 the OHSU Center for Ethics in Health Care has partnered with practitioners of all health professions regionally and nationally to be a leading voice for compassionate health care.

interprofessional approach of the Center's work. With the generosity and talent from the Center's founders, supporters and volunteers, we celebrate 25 years of dedication in helping guide the mission of the Center for Ethics in Health Care.
