  • OU MEDICAL CENTER, Oklahoma City's largest and most diverse hospital, features a winning team of world-class academic and private physicians, nurses and health care specialists. A team that is earning a national reputation for excellence, innovation and positive outcomes, not only Oklahoma, but around the world. A team of medical professionals capable of treating a full range of patients, from the tiniest premature baby to the most critically ill senior. A team that supports Oklahoma with quality patient care, medical education and research.
  • On February 5, 1998, the historic Joint Operating Agreement between the state-operated University and Children's Hospitals and the privately owned Presbyterian Hospital was signed, creating a hospital unique in the history of Oklahoma. This event signaled a new day in the delivery of health care to citizens of Oklahoma, ensuring the long-term viability of the hospitals through a unique working relationship between the private and public sectors. The agreement has resulted in the continuation and expansion of medical services for the citizens of Oklahoma.
  • This tradition of cooperation was enhanced on June 20, 2001, when the hospital's name was change to OU MEDICAL CENTER, expanding and defining the close working relationships that exist between the hospital, its affiliate physicians, and the University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center. The new name truly symbolizes the triple mission of quality patient care, research to find new medical cures, and the education of tomorrows health care providers. Once again, the citizens of Oklahoma are the winners through the application of new and modern techniques and procedures to cure disease and injury. The hospital's new promise line - "When Your Health Really Matters" - says it all. When someone is sick or injured, the OU MEDICAL CENTER is the place to come for medical care.
  • A few examples of the incredible care available at OU MEDICAL CENTER are:
    • Nationally known neurosurgeons who can operate on brain tumors without making an incision using the region's only Gamma Knife.
    • Oklahoma City's only Level One Trauma Center specialists who are now saving lives that two years ago would have been lost.
    • Cancer treatment and research experts who daily are fighting -and winning - the battle against breast cancer and other deadly cancers.
    • Surgeons who can repair the hearts of babies so tiny, they fit in the palm of your hand.
    • Specialist in almost every adult and pediatric area of medicine.

These, and hundreds more modern-day miracles, are happening every day at the OU MEDICAL CENTER and The Children's Hospital at OU MEDICAL CENTER.
