Providence Milwaukie Hospital is a 77-bed community hospital in suburban Portland that serves the community by evaluating need and adding programs and services to meet those needs.

Partnering with the family medicine residency clinics, among others, Providence Milwaukie responded to patients who identify as being food insecure by dedicating space for a teaching kitchen and food pharmacy. Teaching kitchens offer small group cooking classes and demonstrations on cooking and eating well. Chefs engage attendees in fun and informative classes covering how to cook, what to eat, and skills around meal planning, shopping and eating on a budget. Our residents can do a Teaching Food Kitchen elective as part of their training.

Food pharmacies offer clinicians an opportunity to write patients’ a “prescription” for food. Patients leave with prescriptions or vouchers that can be redeemed at our food pharmacy after meeting with a dietician.

Providence Milwaukie’s 16,000 square feet, 20 treatment-room Emergency Department is one of the busiest small hospital EDs in Oregon.

Providence Milwaukie also operates a 20-bed geriatric psychiatric unit, the only unit of its kind in metropolitan Portland. This short-term stabilization unit is staffed with psychiatrists specializing in geriatric care and nurses. This service compliments a new out-patient psychiatric clinic and ECT services.

The hospital houses the full complement of diagnostic imaging services including 3-D mammography, MRI, two CT scanners, nuclear medicine, and ultrasound. Laboratory services are available 24-hours.

Providence Milwaukie Hospital invested more than $20 million a year to improve health outcomes inour communities. These targeted investments include more than $1.7 million in community grants and $3.1 million in free and low-cost care. One of these investments included support expansion for the Annie Ross House – the only emergency family shelter in Clackamas County which can serve more than 250 adults and children annually.

Providence Milwaukie Hospital represents an excellent environment for the continuity component of family medicine education. The residency has the enthusiastic support of the medical staff, the majority of whom are family physicians and general internists.

Providence Milwaukie Hospital has no other residency programs.
