In April 2017, Legacy Good Samaritan Medical Center in Portland started to offer non-invasive HIFU for localized prostate cancer. Legacy Good Samaritan Medical Center first opened its doors in 1875 to the Portland community. Since then, Legacy Good Samaritan has become the flagship hospital for the nationally-awarded Legacy Cancer Institute.

For outpatient procedures at Legacy Good Samaritan Medical Center, you get the convenience of your pre- and post-op stay in our Short Stay Unit with the security of your surgery being done in our main operating rooms with an entire hospital team there to support you through your procedures – anesthesiologists, OR technicians, nurses and physicians.
