Clinical Trials

OHSU offers ample opportunity for participation in ongoing research and clinical trials. Our clinical studies would not be possible without the thousands of participants who volunteer each year and the providers who help enroll them.

    Beaverton clinic expands specialty care on west side

    Patients from Hillsboro to the Coast will have easier access to OHSU specialty care in 2017. The Westside Beaverton clinic is expanding. Now, many of the specialty services available on OHSU’s main campus will be accessible close to home, providing increased convenience and reduced travel time for patients.

    What’s coming to the Westside Beaverton Clinic

    The clinic, which began as part of the OHSU Knight Cancer Institute, is currently home to hematology-oncology, radiation oncology and some cardiology services. These services will continue, but by mid-2017, the OHSU Knight Cardiovascular Institute will offer a full range of cardiology care in this location. Further new services at this clinic include:

    • Otolaryngology — April 2017
    • Dermatology — April 2017
    • Orthopaedics and rehabilitation — August 2017
    • Central phlebotomy lab
    • X-ray and ultrasound imaging services

    A new centralized check-in location is coming in 2017 so patients no longer need to check in at multiple clinics. Services in family and internal medicine are available to fill any general needs while patients are on-site, and an expanded retail pharmacy is available on the first floor. Like all of OHSU’s community clinics, the Westside Beaverton location offers ample free parking for patients.

    For information, please call the OHSU Physician Consult & Referral Service at 503-494-4567 or 800-245-6478.
