Who We Are

Mission Statement

The board-certified pediatricians of The Children’s Clinic are committed to providing the highest quality care to our patients from birth to young adulthood. Our goal is to provide this care with compassion, integrity and continuity. We are devoted to these goals while developing a trusting and lifelong relationship with our families for generations.


The Children’s Clinic was founded in 1911 by Dr. Joseph Bilderback, the first pediatrician in the Northwest who founded OHSU’s Pediatric Department. The Children’s Clinic was originally located in downtown Portland. Now over 100 years later, the clinic has moved and expanded to three locations. Portland-area residents have trusted our expertise for more than a century, and we hope you will too.
