OHSU: Center for Health and Healing (South)

The OHSU CHH-S project consists of two new multi-story buildings located on Blocks 28 and 29 of Portland’s South Waterfront.  The first is the Center for Health and Healing 2 (CHH2) which is a 15 story ambulatory patient care tower.  CHH2 includes patient treatment, surgery, imaging, clinical trials, and a compounding pharmacy that are part of the Knight Cancer Research initiative.  The adjacent building, called the Rood Family Pavilion, contains a five story Guest House for patients and their families.  The Guest House sits atop six levels of new parking with a conference center at ground level.

A new central utility plant (CUP) for both buildings is located in the Block 29 development and will also provide cooling needs to the existing Center for Health and Healing – North in the near future.  A Sky bridge provides access between CHH-South and CHH-North on the fourth level.  The Block 28 Guest House is connected on its basement level to Block 29 via an underground tunnel.
