St. John Health System’s newest facility, St. John Broken Arrow, is now open. The facility, which is located at 1000 W. Boise Circle near Elm Place and Albany, features innovation and plenty of room for growth, according to Chief Executive Officer David Phillips.
Phillips, a 22-year healthcare veteran, oversees all strategic, operational, and administrative activities of the 96-bed, 150,000 square-foot hospital. Phillips assumes the position of St. John Broken Arrow chief executive officer in addition to his current role of St. John Owasso chief executive officer, a position he has held since the hospital opened in 2006. Since St. John Broken Arrow’s design and services are partially modeled after St. John Owasso, Phillips’ leadership experience is a natural fit in the development and opening of the Broken Arrow facility.
“St. John is pleased to be able to provide health care services to Broken Arrow and surrounding areas,” says Phillips. “St. John has been welcomed with open arms and seen excellent success in Owasso. We look forward to a similar experience in Broken Arrow.” Prior to assuming the position at St. John Owasso, Phillips served as president of Ventures, . In this role, Phillips led the creation of Owasso Medical Center, Owasso’s first large-scale medical office building.
St. John Broken Arrow is a six-story, 96-bed hospital that offers a wide range of healthcare services, including emergency care, women’s services, orthopedic services, general surgery and all-digital diagnostic imaging services. A 100,000 square-foot medical office building is connected to the hospital. Additionally, the commercial development area adjacent to the hospital will include retail establishments, banks, full-service restaurants and hotel services.
St. John Broken Arrow is built and owned by Broken Arrow Medical Facility, and managed by St. John Health System. The Haskell Company serves as the architectural and construction services firm for the hospital and medical office building.
Phillips says that the hospital now employees 200, and the number should reach 300 soon.
A total of six stories and 180,000 square feet create a new addition to the overall look of Broken Arrow. Offering the best quality of care to those in the area and beyond, the facility boats 20 joint and orthopedic rooms, 48 medical and surgical rooms and 22 emergency department rooms.
