How to request a therapy visit from Parker:

I would like to request a visit for someone in a hospital Parker routinely visits

               A parent, guardian, or adult patient should make a request through hospital staff. If you specifically want Parker you can request him by name. 

               Oregon Health Sciences University (OHSU) - every other Thursday between 10:00 - 12:00 (noon)

               Doernbecher Children's Hospital - every other Thursday between 10:00 - 12:00 (noon)

               Kaiser Westside Medical Center - every Friday

               Kaiser Interstate Oncology Clinic - occasionally, or as requested

                    *occasionally visits other hospitals in the Portland-metro area

I would like my child to read to Parker with Read to the Dogs

               Children who are reading on their own can practice their reading with one of many trained therapy dog teams. Grades K-5 with adult. Call the 

               Children's Desk to set up an appointment. 503-350-3600
