Since 1893 AMC has been providing quality care to the Portland community. Even though our name and location has evolved, our commitment and service oriented attitude has remained constant. AMC is now a 302-bed facility serving 900,000 residents. It is full service with major emphases in: surgery, cardiology, neurosurgery, mental health, obstetrics, orthopedics, outpatient rehabilitation, primary care, home care and hospice.
Today, Adventist Health circles the globe. Sponsored by the Seventh-day Adventist Church, this network includes 160 hospitals and nearly 500 clinics, nursing homes and dispensaries worldwide. AMC is proud to be a part of this network and share the vision to treat the whole person-mind, body and spirit.
So why choose Adventist Medical Center? As a not-for-profit organization, every dollar we make stays where it should-in our community. Our earnings never land in shareholders' mailboxes. Instead, they are used to enhance patient care, expand hospital programs and build new facilities. To make life better for those we serve.
We've been doing just that for more than a century. Although costs have risen, reimbursement has fallen and competition continues to increase, our commitment to our community has never wavered. This same commitment is passed along to our employees, business partners and members of our medical staff.
We are here for no other reason than to serve the people around us to the best of our ability. Our dedicated team of caregivers believe they can make a difference. With new generations come new people; the spirit of our existence remains the same. Our continued pursuit of perfection for over 100 years has put us at the forefront of both service excellence and community betterment.
