One year after a City Trust transferred ownership of Oklahoma State University Medical Center from Ardent Health Services, Medical Center continues to focus on the future and is well on its way to completing a two year strategic plan.

Major renovations and equipment upgrades have begun for the departments of Surgery, Cardiology, Interventional Radiology and Wound Care. Significant upgrades to infrastructure and plant, electrical and mechanical systems have been completed, with more under way.

Additional physicians have been recruited in Cardiology, Interventional Cardiology, Otolaryngology, Internal Medicine and Family Medicine.

Plans for 2011 include renovations in the departments of Emergency Medicine, Respiratory Therapy, Laboratory, Dialysis and Maternal Child Health as well as significant improvements to the exterior grounds of the OSUMC campus. Additional physicians are being recruited including internal medicine and family medicine physicians, urology and orthopedic specialists. The many capital improvements and new recruits have boosted both business and morale and enable OSUMC to focus on long-term growth.

This past year, the OSUMC Emergency Department won a national award for patient satisfaction for exceeding industry standards. Also, high scores on the medical center’s employee satisfaction surveys continue to reflect the positive environment of OSUMC.
Committed to the same caring philosophy and leadership the original hospital founders set forth 65 years ago, Medical Center continues its proud tradition of teaching and training physicians to serve in local and rural communities, providing exceptional health care for every patient, every time.
