Provider Bio

About the Provider

Dr. Hoffman grew up in New England where he spent his summers working on a farm and playing baseball. He received his undergraduate degree from the University of Maine - and met his wife, a native Oregonian. 

Dr. Hoffman has been moving west ever since, attending medical school at St. Louis University and completing his internship and residency at the Oregon Health & Science University. It was in medical school where he chose the specialty of obstetrics after seeing the joy in his mentors when they discussed the long term relationships that they had formed with their patients. He is board certified in obstetrics and gynecology and has been in practice at St. Vincent’s hospital since 1991. 

Dr. Hoffman has served in leadership positions throughout his career, including as president of WHA from 1999 to 2010. He is currently the Chief for the Women and Children’s Division at Providence St. Vincent Medical Center and on the board of directors for Health Share of Oregon. Outside of his career, Dr. Hoffman enjoys biking, hiking and skiing. He was certified as an executive coach in 2017 and he currently coaches existing and future health care leaders.
