Friends of Doernbecher



The KMR Group Foundation has donated more than 525 parent packs to the families of Doernbecher Children’s Hospital patients who are facing a sudden and dire threat to their lives. These packs are deeply appreciated, especially by families who have been transported to the hospital by PANDA – Doernbecher’s pediatric and neonatal transport program.

Needless to say, at any given time, there are many parents in the midst of this harrowing situation at Doernbecher. KMR supports Doernbecher’s mission to provide the premier children’s healthcare experience in our region, through excellence in care, advocacy, innovation, education and research. Doernbecher is one of only two pediatric level-1 trauma centers in Oregon.

The parent packs include essentials such as shampoo, toothbrushes andStarbucks gift cards. The Claudia Swanson Chapter, one of several groups that support Doernbecher, donated the backpacks.
