The Division of Pediatric Cardiology at OHSU, directed by Dr. Laurie Armsby, includes thirteen physicians, two nurse practitioners, four fellows, nurses, technicians and administrative staff. Expertise in the subspecialties of Interventional Cath, EP, Echo, MRI, Heart Failure, Pulmonary Hypertension, Dyslipidemia, Heart Transplant and Adult Congenital Heart Disease are represented in our faculty. We provide the highest quality care to children with heart disease referred to our center from throughout the Pacific Northwest.

Doernbecher connects via bridge to OHSU Hospital where the ED, NICU, Cath Lab, Cardiac MRI and Adult services are located.
