Oregon hospitals upgrade services and facilities

The Oregonian, April 21, 2008

Several medical groups in Oregon continue to construct or remodel buildings, as well as implement technology to change how patients receive treatment. For example, Legacy Health System in Portland will construct a new, seven-story tower to expand the Legacy Emanuel Children's Hospital and provide a new Children's Emergency Department. Emanuel's west wing and patient tower will also be remodeled for additional adult intensive care and acute care beds. Also, Providence Portland Medical Center is expanding its computer system so it can carry more than half the orders for patient care at the hospital.
