Providence ALS Center
Providence ALS Center eases the way for patients to receive care and maximize their quality of life.
Here, specialists come to the patient. At one four-hour appointment, a patient may see as many as 12 specialists – all in one location. An ALS nurse serves as the patients’ guide, helping them identify needs, follow through on treatment plans and connect to resources. This approach brings specialists together as a team to identify the best treatment options and improves survival and quality of life for patients with ALS.
Providence ALS Center – Oregon’s only Center of Excellence certified by the ALS Association – is actively engaged in clinical trials and is one of only a few sites on the West Coast to offer the Diaphragmatic Pacing System. The Providence ALS team is passionate about providing excellent, compassionate and holistic care for each patient.
Providence ALS Center is a collaboration between Providence Brain and Spine Institute and The ALS Association Oregon and SW Washington Chapter.
Rachel and her husband Evan moved to Vancouver to be closer to our world-renowned Providence ALS Clinic. Rachel uses a wheelchair now, but she is standing up to the disease and fighting for a cure with everything she has.
We’re the center of ALS for the Pacific Northwest and frankly it’s because of Kim.
