For 100 years, Hillcrest has been a health care leader in Tulsa, providing an environment of hope, health, and healing to patients and their families.

Founded as Morningside Hospital in 1918 in response to a nationwide influenza epidemic, Hillcrest is one of the longest-standing hospitals in Tulsa. Its original facility was located at 512 N. Boulder Ave. and was purchased to care for influenza patients. Morningside continued to expand over the next 10 years until a facility was opened in 1928 at 16th and Utica under the ownership of Mr. and Mrs. William J. McNulty.

In 1939, Morningside Hospital was renamed Hillcrest Hospital and, under new leadership, grew to become one of the largest hospitals in Oklahoma.

Hillcrest continues to expand its presence and full spectrum of services to include advanced cardiovascular and neurological programs, specialized women’s health care, and innovative approaches to surgery and primary care across northeastern Oklahoma. Hillcrest HealthCare System is now a comprehensive health system that includes nine hospitals, two physician groups and over 6,000 employees.

Hillcrest takes pride in its place in Tulsa’s history and continues to provide medical excellence and compassionate care.
