A Healing Environment

To Encourage, Inspire and Support You

When you undergo orthopedic surgery at Adventist Health Orthopedic Clinic, you’ll not only benefit from our clinical expertise but also from the revolutionary healing environment we’ve created here.

Our facilities in both Portland and Tillamook incorporate innovative design features that enhance and accelerate your recovery process. Our goal is to encourage, inspire and support you, every step of the way.

Here’s a closer look at what we offer:

  • Point-of-care nursing support—Your care team is located nearby for the quickest response, with access enhanced by alcove workstations outside each patient room featuring warm-colored task lighting that won’t overwhelm you with light from the corridor
  • Inspiring colors and artwork—An energizing, spa-like environment, with colors and architectural finishes that invigorate and inspire, accented by local artwork
  • Well-appointed activity/therapy room where you and your loved one (if you wish) participate in specialized therapeutic activities

  • Lighting that supports your natural sleep/wake cycle—Instead of the harsh fluorescent lighting found in many hospitals, our lighting system is programmed to support your circadian rhythms. It provides daylight-colored light in the morning to stimulate the body’s production of serotonin to fuel activity, and calming, ambient light in the evening to stimulate the body’s production of melatonin (the “sleep hormone”) for quiet time and rest

Throughout your stay, you are cared for by a dedicated team that includes your surgeon, orthopedics-certified registered nurses, and skilled physical and occupational therapists. In addition, your nurse navigator is there for you, every step of the way.
