Making room for innovation

Building on decades of innovation and collaboration, OHSU Casey Eye Institute is embracing a bold new goal –to eliminate blindness in Oregon and beyond. To set the stage for a new era of innovation, the institute is currently in the design phase of a new facility to accelerate discovery and help reach more patients with better options, sooner. 

The building will be adjacent to the current structure on Marquam Hill, and be named the Elks Children's Eye Clinic, in recognition of a significant gift from the Elks Youth Eye Service (EYES). 

The building will house the Elks Children's Eye Clinic, the Macular Degeneration Center, the Gene and Cell Therapy Unit, and have space for additional research and patient care needs. 

Groundbreaking is expected to begin in the spring of 2018.
