A portion of the net proceeds from the 2013 adidas Shamrock Run will benefit Doernbecher Children's Hospital Foundation.
The Doernbecher Children's Hospital Foundation provides power, potential, and promise for one of America's leading pediatric health centers: Doernbecher Children's Hospital. The commitment and generosity of thousands of donors - individuals, companies, foundations, and organizations - help make possible comprehensive and innovative health care, education, and research at Doernbecher Children's Hospital for the children of Oregon and southwest Washington.
Your children might have your eyes, your hair or your smile; but they do not have your same healthcare needs. Whether it is a highly specialized surgical procedure, a simple treatment for an early childhood infection, an immunization or preventive screening, Doernbecher Children's Hospital cares for children as unique individuals. We focus on their constantly changing needs as they grow and develop.
Forget "super sizing." In our hospital, and in our primary care and specialty practices, we are into "kid-sizing." Our caregivers have special medical expertise and compassion. And yet, we also know that playrooms and outdoor playgrounds, special medications, and schedules that include extra time and more monitoring are important when caring for children. Computers allow our hospital patients to remain close to their friends and classmates, and we have designed activities and services to help take the fear out of treatments and surgeries.
Doernbecher's doctors, nurses and staff are exclusively dedicated to caring for kids in a way that includes parents from start to finish. Our belief in this type of family-centered care is what gives our children's hospital a special place in Oregon and the Pacific Northwest. With practices on Marquam Hill, in Portland's Bethany and South Waterfront neighborhoods, we're convenient, too.
