OU-Tulsa to Build $20 Million North Tulsa Clinic

OU President David Boren and OU-Tulsa President Gerard Clancy, M.D., have announced that the Oklahoma State Legislature and private donors have committed $20 million to OU-Tulsa to assist in the building of a specialty clinic.
The 50,000-SF clinic, which will be located at 36th Street North and Hartford Avenue, will serve patients in north, east and west Tulsa. The facility will focus on specialty care, including the treatment of cancer, diabetes and heart disease. It will feature MRI and CT, endoscopy, outpatient surgery, a wellness center and cardiac rehabilitation center.
The clinic will include 20 doctors and could employ as many as 300.
Funding for the specialty clinic came from a variety of public and private sources, including $6 million from the State Legislature, $4 million from other state agencies, $3 million from the George Kaiser Family Foundation, $3.5 million from anonymous donors, $1 million from the Morningside Healthcare Foundation, and $1 million from Saint Francis Health System.
Gifts of $750,000 from both the Anne and Henry Zarrow Foundation and the Helmerich Foundation were the final gifts that helped OU-Tulsa achieve the goal. St. John Medical Center provided $1 million in medical equipment support.
