Accepting Patients:

"I love working with women and their families and witnessing amazing, life-changing events with my patients. I believe that all women deserve to be heard and cared for in a compassionate way."


Patti Hanson specializes in midwifery and obstetrics, women's health and gynecology and colposcopy procedures. Her interest lies in ethics in decision making and the consent process in obstetrics. Patti loves working with families and helping guide them through stressful and exciting life events. She is honored to be present with women during labor and childbirth. For her, midwifery is a passion, not just a job.

Originally from the Philadelphia area, Patti moved to Oregon after attending school for midwifery in New York City. She chose to work at OHSU because she can practice the art of midwifery within a hospital system as well as teach the next generation of midwives. A nature lover, Patti loves to hike, ski and kayak with her husband and two children. Patti is the the Nurse-Midwifery Practice Financial Manager.


"I practice holistic midwifery care and serve as a guide for women and their families through the miraculous journey of pregnancy and childbirth."
