Welcome to Your
Medical Home

Hillsboro Pediatric Clinic (HPC) has been taking care of infants, children, and adolescents for over 30 years! In 2012 HPC was the first pediatric clinic to be recognized in Oregon as a Patient Centered Primary Care Home (“Medical Home”). Our mission is to provide consistent, timely, compassionate, and innovative high quality medical care to the children and adolescents of our community.

Hillsboro Pediatric News

Acceptable vs. Unacceptable Face Masks

As of September 22, 2020, our clinic has a new face mask policy regarding the different types of face masks that can be worn in our offices.


COVID-19 Vaccines

This is very exciting news! There are now two (and soon to be more) COVID-19 vaccines available in the United States. We strongly recommend that you get the vaccine if you are eligible.

Oregon has developed a plan for the order in which people can get the vaccine: Learn More Here

Hillsboro Pediatric Clinic will not be giving the vaccines out at our offices, this is due to the storage and handling requirements for the vaccines. Oregon Health Authority has set up a web site to help you confirm your eligibility and help you to find a location to get a COVID19 vaccine. This website is only in English at this time. It works best using the following browser: Safari, Chrome, Microsoft Edge, or Firefox. Get Vaccinated Oregon

The current vaccines are only for people 16 years and older. There are COVID-19 vaccine trials ongoing for children as young as 12 years old. Soon there will be vaccine trials for younger children, too.
If you have questions about the COVID-19 vaccine, you can find information by visiting the Center for Disease Control website.

COVID-19 UPDATE

Updated September 24, 2020

Hillsboro Pediatric Clinic is dedicated as ever to the health and safety of the children we serve, their families, our community, and our staff and healthcare providers. Like you, Hillsboro Pediatric Clinic has been closely monitoring the news surrounding the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) pandemic and we want to do our best to keep our loved ones safe.

We have taken significant protective measures, and we thank you for your patience and flexibility moving forward.

  • Everyone older than 3 years is required to wear a face mask. We have updated our face mask policy, as stated under “Hillsboro Pediatric News”. If you do not have one that meets our guidelines, we will provide one for you.
  • Video Telemedicine visits are now available, these are appropriate for many types of visits. We use a HIPAA-compliant secure connection via Zoom to meet with you from the comfort of your home.
  • We are limiting the number of people coming in and out of our clinic. Please make an effort to bring the patient and no more than one support person to office visits.
  • Employee and visitor temperatures are checked upon entry, and screening questions are asked about potential exposures.
  • Non-urgent, ill patients will be seen in the clinic during afternoon and evening hours at Main Street only.
  • Our Main Street clinic now has clearly designated “Ill” and “Well” sections. This includes the parking lot, entrances, waiting rooms, and patient rooms.
  • Our Orenco Street clinic is open for healthy newborns, healthy infants, and all Westside Breastfeeding Center visits only.
  • For Well patients: We continue to see patients of all ages. Regular check-ups are more important now than ever before to keep your child healthy and catch problems early.
    • Orenco Station Clinic: Well Child Checks for newborns and younger infants only.

    • Main Street Clinic (Side A):

      • Well Child Checks for healthy infants, toddlers, and older children and adolescents.

      • Adolescents in need of birth control.

      • Park, enter, and exit the building through Side A.
      • Check in by phone from your car: follow the instructions posted at each parking spot. We will escort you into the building.

    • For ill patients or patients brought in by ill family members: These visits will take place at the Main Street Clinic (Side B) during the afternoon and evening hours.
      • We are increasing our phone triage efforts to minimize unnecessary exposures. Patients who need to be seen will be seen. However we may offer a phone or video telemedicine appointment with a medical provider rather than an office visit.

      • Park in, enter, and exit the building through Side B.
      • Check in by phone from your car: follow the instructions posted at each parking spot. We will escort you into the building.

    • For Behavioral Health Patients: We continue to provide care. Many of these visits will be offered through telemedicine appointments.

    We have expanded our hygiene measures. Common areas like lobbies, door knobs, and chairs are disinfected every couple of hours. More time between office visits has been added to allow for more thorough room cleanings. Our nightly janitorial procedures have been intensified.

    We are closely tracking known cases of COVID-19 who have entered our spaces, we will contact anyone we learn was exposed.

    We hope these only need to be short-term precautions, but regardless of conditions Hillsboro Pediatric Clinic will continue to be available to help you care for your children for years to come.

    We also understand if you and your family are worried and overwhelmed. Please rest assured that we are gathering the most accurate information and you can call us for any questions or concerns you may have.
