Designated Hypertension Center
The OHSU Comprehensive Hypertension Center specializes in the treatment of high blood pressure that is difficult to manage. The center is accredited by the American Society of Hypertension (ASH) – the first center west of the Mississippi to earn this designation. Physicians in primary care, obstetrics, cardiology, nephrology, endocrinology, and other specialties refer patients to the Comprehensive Hypertension Center for a second or third opinion on treatment and causes of high blood pressure.
The center offers individualized care to patients who have hypertension in addition to other complex health conditions as well as the assessment and treatment of secondary hypertension.
