iMRI at Doernbecher Children’s Hospital

Oregon Health & Science University

OHSU Doernbecher is the first dedicated children’s hospital on the West Coast to open a pediatric iMRI (intraoperative magnetic resonance imaging) facility within the hospital’s operating room. This iMRI is able to precisely locate tumors and confirm their removal during surgery.

A New Addition

OHSU retained SRG to study location options within Doernbecher Children’s Hospital for this new imaging technology. Due to complications with access, structure and potential disruption to ongoing operations, OHSU approved SRG’s recommendation to build a 2-story addition, in lieu of renovating existing surgery space. By building an addition instead of renovating, the project saved an estimated $2 million and 2 years of construction time.
