About Us

Nurse takes patient's blood pressure


For more than a decade, we have been improving the way that you and thousands of women in Oregon, and beyond, access and experience health care. 

You can count on our medical experts for your care today and through every stage of your life. Our doctors, nurses, researchers, social workers and support staff are all highly qualified, sensitive to your needs and honored to be trusted partners for you and your family.

The OHSU Center for Women’s Health strives to achieve the highest standard of care for women, transgender and gender diverse individuals across the lifespan. We provide care in an inclusive space to all who seek it, regardless of gender expression or identity.

Our staff recognizes that bodies differ in many subtle ways beyond the obvious reproductive organs. We root our approach in the belief that you deserve compassionate care from a team that listens to you and respects your needs. 

We advocate for the health and rights of our patients in more than just our exam rooms. We are dedicated to promoting health and equity leadership in our classrooms, research, government and communities.
