Ben has worked with the cystic fibrosis community throughout his 20+ years in nursing, first as an inpatient nurse in internal medicine, and now as the R.N. coordinator for over 200 patients in Oregon and southwest Washington. He enjoys working with kids and their families, helping them learn, understand, and cope with this challenging disease, and he loves the unique experience of developing long-term relationships with families.
Outside of work, Ben enjoys spending time with his wife, another nurse who also works at OHSU. They love traveling to exotic locations, hiking, bicycling, and exploring all that Portland has to offer.

Before scheduling your appointment, we recommend you contact your insurance company to verify that the OHSU Health location or provider you plan to visit is included in your network. Your insurance company will also be able to inform you of any copayments, co–insurance, or deductibles that will be your responsibility. If you proceed in scheduling an appointment and your health insurance benefits do not participate with OHSU providers, your out of pocket liability may be higher. Visit the billing and insurance section of our site for more information.
