Eastmoreland Hospital was a 100-bed medical center in Portland, Oregon, United States. Closed in January 2004 along with sister hospital Woodland Park,[1] the facility was purchased by Reed College and torn down.

History[edit]

Eastmoreland Hospital was established in the 1940s.[2] In 1987, the hospital opened an osteopathic family practice residency for osteopathic physicians.[2] Located in southeast Portland, the hospital was bought by Symphony Healthcare in 2002.[3] By 2004 Symphony was bankrupt and sold the 7 acres (2.8 ha) of land to Reed College for $5.2 million in February 2004.[4] They also auctioned off everything inside the hospital that year.[5] After acquiring the property, Reed College leveled the buildings.[6]
