PGY1 Pharmacy Residency – Milwaukie/Newberg

Providence Milwaukie Hospital and
Providence Newberg Medical Center

Providence Newberg Medical Center (PNMC) and Providence Milwaukie Hospital (PMH) are small community hospitals near Portland, Oregon. As a part of Providence Health & Services these two facilities are able to harness the strength of progressive medical practices and advanced technology while maintaining their community-oriented atmosphere.

PNMC is a 40-bed community hospital connected to a suite of ambulatory care physician offices. The primary patient population is medical/surgical and obstetrics. PMH is a 77-bed acute care hospital with a Family Medicine Residency Program. Services include senior psychiatry and medical/surgical.
