Healing in the Heart of the City
In 2005, Oregon College of Oriental Medicine (OCOM) identified relocating the campus as an important strategic initiative essential to meeting the long-term vision of the college. In 2011, the college began to realize that initiative when it purchased the historic Globe Hotel in downtown Portland. Working with Beam Development and LCG Pence, OCOM transformed the historic 100-year-old building into a LEED Gold certified, state-of-the-art campus.
The relocation has positioned the college to better address the increasing interest in our master’s and doctoral degree programs in acupuncture and Oriental medicine, while simultaneously enabling us to provide health care in a neighborhood currently undergoing an exciting renaissance. Our new centrally located campus, designed in accordance with the Chinese principles of feng shui, and synergistically positioned in Portland’s Old Town Chinatown:
- Provides OCOM with an academic, clinical and research facility designed from the ground floor up
- Doubles the college’s square footage to better serve the needs of our students and patients
- Brings our academic, clinical and research facilities together under one roof
- Supports the expansion of OCOM’s clinic services, public programs and community wellness activities.
