The Children’s Clinic was founded in 1911 by Dr. Joseph Bilderback. He was the first Pediatrician in the Northwest and founded the Pediatric Department at the Oregon Health Science University. The Children’s Clinic was originally located in downtown Portland. Now over 100 years later the clinic has moved and expanded to included two full service sites. Our Portland pediatrics clinic is located in SW Portland on Barnes Road, and our Tualatin clinic is located on SW 65th Avenue.

About Our Tualatin & Portland Pediatric Clinics

Our two pediatric clinics in the Portland metropolitan area are located in SW Portland and Tualatin. Our Peterkort clinic is in the Peterkort Centre, near St. Vincent Hospital at the junction of US 26 & Oregon 217. Our Tualatin clinic is on the Meridian Park Hospital campus, just off Interstate 5 at the Tualatin-Sherwood exit.
