Oregon Health & Science University About Oregon Health & Science University

Oregon Health & Science University is a public university located in Portland, Oregon. It was established in 1887 as the University of Oregon Medical Department as the result of the merge between the medical programs of Willamette University and the University of Oregon. The school relocated to its present location on Marquam Hill in Southwest Portland in 1919. The land for this campus was donated by the Oregon-Washington Railroad and Navigation Company and C.S. “Sam” Jackson after the location was considered unsuitable for the construction of a railroad yard. In 1955, the state senator cosponsored a bill to transform the department into a teaching hospital. In 1974, the school became independent of the University of Oregon after merging the medical institutions located on Marquam Hill. In 1998, the school recognized the support of the senator through dedication of Mark O. Hatfield Clinical Research Center and the creation of the Hatfield information wall in the lobby of the main hospital. In 2008, Hatfield became the Chair of the university Board of Directors. In 2001, the university merged with Oregon Graduate Institute changing its name from the Oregon Health Sciences University to its current name. The merge was supported by $4 million fund provided by the M.J. Murdock Charitable Trust with the aim of establishing a new biomedical engineering program. In 2008, the college received $100 million donation from Phil Knight and his wife Penny Knight supporting OHSU Cancer Institute which was renamed the OHSU Knight Cancer Institute. The college received another $100 million donation from Columbia Sportswear chairwoman Gert Boyle  in 2014 followed by $500 million additional donation from Knight in the following year.

The university operates two hospitals within its main campus in Portland in addition to a third hospital next to the main campus. The hospital is connected to the campus by the longest suspended pedestrian skybridge in North America. Additionally, the university runs a branch campus in Hillsboro.

The university is divided into three schools. It is accredited by the Northwest Commission on Colleges and Universities.
