About me

Cynthia joined the OHSU Cardiac Surgery Intensive Care Unit in 2010, specializing in postoperative cardiothoracic surgery care. She transitioned with the ICU as it evolved into the Cardiovascular Intensive Care Unit, which now focuses on the care of those with all critical cardiac conditions. She enjoys the complexity of the ICU and assisting patients and their families in navigating their paths toward wellness.

One thing she appreciates most about the ICU is the opportunity to work with skilled intensivists, surgeons, heart failure specialists and cardiologists who provide state-of-the-art therapies for complex disease processes. Cynthia is also a member of Simulated Code Interdisciplinary Team Training, which helps improve skills of the OHSU Code Blue response team.

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.
