On April 1st, 2019, the providers and staff of the former Bridgeview Women’s Health in northwest Portland became part of Women’s Healthcare Associates, LLC (WHA). WHA Bridgeview, as the location is now known, retains the same address, phone and fax numbers.
“We are thrilled to increase the access to comprehensive care we are able to provide through the addition of the Bridgeview location,” said WHA President Damon Warhus, MD, “the staff and clinicians who have joined WHA share our commitment to excellence in women’s health and our vision that every woman has the care and knowledge she needs to lead a full and healthy life. We look forward to the collaboration we will share in pursuing it.”
Founded in 1981, the office is adjacent to Legacy Good Samaritan Medical Center. The all-female team provides a full range of obstetric, gynecologic and wellness care to women in all stages of life.
“As healthcare in the United States has changed, it had become increasingly challenging to run a small independent practice and took time away from what we loved most: caring for our patients,” said Bridgeview OB/GYN Carrie Miles, MD, MPH, “while we anticipated for some time that we’d someday need to integrate into a larger organization, we wanted to take the time to carefully choose one that fit with our values. Ultimately, this journey led us to WHA and we are excited by what that will mean for our patients, staff and providers going forward.”
Bridgeview becomes WHA’s 11th location offering full-service obstetric and gynecology care, in addition to its three gynecology centers of excellence known as Northwest Gynecology Center, two high-risk obstetric practices of Northwest Perinatal Center and the organization’s out-of-hospital birthing option, the Midwifery Birth Center. Legacy Good Samaritan Medical Center becomes the eighth regional hospital at which women can receive obstetric and surgical care from WHA providers.
