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.


Dr. Warden joined the Department of Emergency Medicine in 1996. He currently serves as the Medical Director of the Global Mission Readiness in Clackamas, the Oregon State Urban Search & Rescue Task Force 1 (OR TF-1), Clackamas County (CCOM) Emergency Medical Dispatch and Clackamas County Emergency Medical Services Advisory Council. Dr. Warden is an accomplished author, educator, former paramedic and innovator. Because of Dr Warden's leadership, the paramedics and EMT's with Clackamas Fire District #1 have embraced participation in a national study on cardiac resuscitation, resulting in some of the highest cardiac arrest "save to alive" at discharge percentages in the country. He also implemented the use of a rescue airway as an option for paramedics to secure an airway while performing CPR, now being considered as the standard for Cardiac Arrest care in the Portland Metropolitan area.
