Directions to Doernbecher Children's Hospital

Doernbecher Children's Hospital

The main entrance of OHSU Doernbecher Children's Hospital brings you to the main lobby of our Portland hospital,  where you will find an information desk, elevators to other floors and the only Starbucks cafe on the OHSU campus.

Directions to the Doernbecher Hospital Building and Parking

As you drive up to Marquam Hill on S.W. Sam Jackson Park Road, turn left at the light onto S.W. Terwilliger Blvd. Then, turn right onto S.W. Campus Drive.  As you continue up the hill, you will see Doernbecher on the left side of the road. The road will veer right towards OHSU Hospital but you will want to make a slight left turn after passing under the hospital and then turn left toward the Doernbecher Children's Hospital main entrance. 

We recommend you park directly in front of Doernbecher's main entrance or along the left side of the street approaching the main entrance.
