I think OHSU is one of the best hospitals in Portland and the surrounding areas. The emergency room staff have always been nice and caring. The check in process is pretty easy and if you don't have insurance, they get you ready for the Oregon Health Plan. I love the fact that if you need to get any test's done, that they are all available in one place. They also have a place for helicopters to land so you know that they can handle pretty much anything. The only bad thing about this hospital is that you have to drive up a steep steep hill which can be hard to do in an emergency during icy/snow weather. I would definitely feel safe taking myself or my children here for care.
