Biography

Patty Woods, C.N.P. is a certified nurse practitioner who specializes in managing congenital heart disease in adolescents, adults and expectant mothers. She has an added focus on transitional congenital heart care from childhood to adulthood. Her clinical goal is to build a comprehensive, patient-centered program, so that life-long motivation comes from within the patient instead of being imposed on them. She would like to see young heart patients successfully make the transition from pediatric cardiology to adult congenital care so that they understand the importance of ongoing care and know how to access it.

Quote from Patty: “I love visiting my daughters at each and every opportunity. There is so much delight in making plans for a new adventure, learning a new hobby, cooking, visiting with friends, and really just exploring Oregon each and every day. I feel so blessed to be at this stage in my life and still have a chance at making my life even more fulfilled. Reminds me of a favorite quote by Eleanor Roosevelt ‘you rarely achieve finality; if you did, life would be over, but as you strive new versions open before you, new possibilities for the satisfaction of living’.”
