Oregon Health and Science University Hospital | 100 Great Hospitals in America 2015

Oregon Health and Science University Hospital (Portland). Established in 1974, Oregon Health and Science University Hospital is Oregon's only academic health center. Magnet-designated for nursing excellence, 572-bed OHSU is home to several specialized research centers and institutes, including the Oregon Clinical and Translational Research Institute and the Advanced Imaging Research Center.

OHSU’s Knight Cancer Institute helped pioneer personalized medicine through a discovery that identified how to shut down cells that enable cancer to grow without harming healthy ones. In 2014, the cancer institute received a $100 million gift that was used for a number of initiatives, including hiring additional scientists to help improve the methods of identifying cancer at its earliest stage.

The hospital has earned a reputation for providing high-quality care. It was named the No. 1 hospital in Oregon in U.S. News & World Report's 2014-15 rankings. The publication also ranked five of the hospital's adult specialties (including cancer, where it was ranked No. 33) and 10 of its pediatric specialties among the top 50 in the nation.
