Neighborhood News

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 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.
