Virtual Tour of Portland’s Shriners Hospital for Children - Continued

Noble John Smith
August 2016

This is the last in a series of articles by Noble John Smith, who now volunteers at the front desk of our hospital and is a member of the new Hospital Support Club.

Floor 5, 6 and 7:

Many Nobles have not visited Portland’s Shriners Hospital. This, for them, is the final article in our floor-by-floor tour of that house made by Shriners to care for children needing a better life.

Floors 5 and 6 are “staff only” floors but if you could visit 5, you would find the Biomedical Services, Facilities Maintenance, Security (Help Desk) and the Daughters of the Nile Sewing Room.

The 6th Floor is dedicated to basic research into bone and limb development, connective tissue disorders and more. Six investigative teams work there in close partnership with the researchers at Oregon Health & Science University to better diagnose, treat and cure orthopedic conditions.

Moving up to the 7th floor, we find all the administrative offices in which people work, behind the scenes, to keep the hospital running. You will discover that if you turn left as you exit the elevator and walk down that hall, you will see Public Relations, Development (Donations), Performance Improvement and Technical Support offices. A right turn upon exiting the elevator and a walk further down that hall will find the Administrator’s office, the Book of Gold (with the names of individual donors of $500.00 or more), the hospital Board of Governors Conference Room and the glass door to the Outside Play Deck (often used as a physical therapy tool-and-a great place to eat lunch on a sunny day). The auditorium, where many hospital-pertinent group programs are presented, is across the hall from the Conference Room.

Portland’s Shriners Hospital works hard for its patients. Some of the following statistics reflect the activity and modernization of the hospital’s patient care:
