The Portland Clinic closing downtown surgery center

After 40 years, the region’s first day surgery facility will permanently close on June 14.

PORTLAND, Ore., June 13, 2024 /PRNewswire/ — Effective June 14, 2024, The Portland Clinic will officially close its downtown surgery center, which is located on the lower level of the clinic’s Downtown branch at 800 SW 13th Avenue. All day surgeries now will be performed at the clinic’s Alberty Surgical Center, located in Tigard at 9100 SW Oleson Road.


Established in 1921, The Portland Clinic is Oregon’s oldest, private, multispecialty medical group. With six locations across the greater Portland metropolitan area, The Portland Clinic cares for more than 90,000 patients each year.

Opened in 1984, The Portland Clinic Downtown Surgery Center was the first day surgery facility in the region. The clinic’s second day surgery center, named for surgeon Roger Alberty, M.D., opened in 2008. During the pandemic, all ambulatory surgery services were transitioned to the Alberty Surgical Center to better manage patient flow, social distancing and pre-testing. Surgeries have not been performed in the downtown location in more than three years.

“We have decided to make the closure of our downtown surgery center permanent to better utilize clinic space and optimize patient care,” says Amy Mulcaster, D.O., chief executive officer of The Portland Clinic. “All of our surgeons and surgical teams will continue to operate solely out of our Alberty Surgical Center.”
