Facility: Providence St. Vincent Medical Center

Founded in 1875, Providence St. Vincent Medical Center (PSVMC) is Oregon's oldest hospital. PSVMC is also one of the most decorated facilities in the nation, having been named a Top 100 Hospital by Thomson Reuters many times over the years. The 523-bed medical center provides some of the most advanced services in the region and is home to the well-respected Providence Heart and Vascular Institute, Providence Brain and Spine Institute and other “centers of excellence.” PSVMC is conveniently located near Highway 26 in west Portland.

Portland has a metro population over two million, but maintains strong local neighborhoods and a close connection to nature. Consequently, the city consistently ranks high in national “livability” contests. The New York Times describes Portland as a “bastion of good living” and “one of our national capitals of cool.” With easy access to mountains and beaches, coupled with a nationally recognized food culture, Portland is a large little city with an outsized and unique cultural footprint.
