Providence Newberg Medical Center (PNMC) and Providence Milwaukie Hospital (PMH) are small community hospitals near Portland, Oregon. As a part of Providence Health & Services these two facilities are able to harness the strength of progressive medical practices and advanced technology while maintaining their community-oriented atmosphere. The Newberg/Milwaukie PGY1 Pharmacy Residency program also benefits from the diverse experience and resources of the other Providence pharmacy residencies combined with its own unique blend of acute and ambulatory pharmacy practices.
Each resident is based at either PNMC or PMH for staffing purposes. However, residents will rotate between the two sites including a few other Providence facilities for diverse practice experiences. PNMC is a 40-bed community hospital connected to a suite of ambulatory care physician offices. The primary patient population is medical/surgical and obstetrics. PMH is a 77-bed acute care hospital with a Family Medicine Residency Program. Services include senior psychiatry and medical/surgical. Both facilities have onsite anticoagulation clinics staffed by pharmacists.
