Providence Portland Medical Center opened its doors in fall 1941. Called Providence Hospital originally, it was built at the request of then-Archbishop Edward Howard to serve the health needs of people living on the east side of the Willamette River. The medical center is located in the North Tabor Neighborhood, and borders the Laurelhurst Neighborhood.

  • Guest housing update, construction viewing opportunity
    Posted: Jan. 5, 2015

    Happy New Year! The Providence Portland Medical Center guest housing project remains on schedule, with completion expected by summer 2015. The project is going up in the block on NE Glisan between 44th and 45th streets. Site excavation is complete, as is footing, foundation, slab on grade and steel erection. Framing is well underway.

    When completed, this facility will offer a home away from home for our patients and their family members who come to us for care from outside of the greater Portland area. It will be used extensively by our patients with cancer and family members who have infants in our neonatal intensive care unit. The project is funded solely by donations.

    You can watch the ongoing work, live, through a video camera we have posted at the site by following these instructions:
    • If you are viewing the camera from outside of the Providence System, enter 170.173.2.245 into your browser address bar.
    • Click “Primary Stream,” which is found in the lower left hand corner.
    • Then select “QuickView Stream.”
    • Then select “Select.”
    • Then click the small box in the right hand lower corner.
    • Then click “click here” to use QuickTime.

    We apologize for the number of steps involved, but it is a necessary security measure.

  • Annual meeting set
    The annual Providence Portland Medical Center neighborhood meeting is scheduled for 7 p.m., Tuesday, Oct. 28, in the Social Room at the hospital. All are welcome to attend, learn what is new in the neighborhood and at Providence and ask questions.

  • Guest housing project well underway
    Anyone driving by NE Glisan near the hospital will see construction is well underway on our guest housing project. The facility will serve patients and family members of patients who travel from outside of the area. We already routinely serve cancer patients from outside of the Pacific Northwest and the United States in our cancer center research trials. The concrete was poured over the last several weeks, and walls will start going up soon. We will start serving patients summer of 2015.

  • Guest housing work begins
    Work will begin in June on Providence Portland Medical Center's new guest housing project on NE Glisan Street between 44th and 45th. Fencing will go up in early June, with demolition expected to begin by mid June. The crew will identify and save any building materials which can be reused in the project such as large glue-lam beams and solid wood members. If all goes well, construction on the project will begin in August. The facility should be ready for patients and their families by late summer or early fall 2015. As promised, we will share construction updates on a regular basis or as needed. Please call Jean Powell Marks, 503-215-6433, if you have any concerns.
