The new OHSU Sports Medicine Center is now open in Portland State’s Viking Pavilion at the Peter W. Stott Center. As the official sports medicine provider of PSU Athletics, OHSU’s nationally-recognized sports medicine doctors and physical therapists provide cutting-edge care to PSU student-athletes.

 

“Our relationship with OHSU and its team of doctors is a great benefit for our student-athletes and coaches,” said PSU Director of Athletics Valerie Cleary.

 

The OHSU Sports Medicine Center provides a space for close to 300 student-athletes to receive multi-specialty care, including sports medicine, strength and conditioning, physical therapy, and nutrition. Highlights of the new center include a large training room, clinic room for private examinations, hydrotherapy room to help with recovery and preparation for games, and easy access to the weight room.

 

OHSU’s Dr. Jacqueline M. Brady and Dr. Melissa Novak serve as team physicians for Viking Athletics. They see student-athletes at the OHSU Sports Medicine Center once a week and during their OHSU clinic hours when needed. They also coordinate care with other providers, and are on call 24/7 if student-athletes, trainers or coaches need to get in touch with them.

 

The expansion of the OHSU Sports Medicine Center is part of the larger Viking Pavilion project, which includes the renovation of the Peter W. Stott Center and construction of the new Viking Pavilion. Viking Pavilion construction began in April 2016, marking the beginning of a ten-year partnership between PSU and OHSU.

 

The Viking Pavilion itself, which will house the main arena, is on schedule to open in April 2018. Viking basketball and volleyball will begin competition there in Fall 2018. The venue can also be reserved for a wide variety of events including commencements, trade shows, conferences, banquets, receptions and lectures.

 

The renovation is fully funded through state bonds, private donors, OHSU and student fees. Funding does not come from general operating funds or tuition dollars. The design of the new $50 million facility was created by Portland's Woofter Architecture and Sink Combs Dethlefs Architects. Fortis Construction is the general contractor.
