This is very sad.

My wife worked there for several years in surgery as an RN befoe recently leaving.

We remember the good days when the facility was thriving and full of patients that were treated like family.

Spouses of employees were treated like family as well.

It has been hard to watch as the service has diminished over the last few years.

Layoff after layoff...

A real shame!

OU Health currently has its primary medical center, children's hospital and cancer center in OKC, along with a hospital in Edmond.  Of the Tulsa hospital systems Hillcrest would make the most sense to be either taken over or joint-ventured with OU Health.  Its location would benefit any future partnerships with TU as well.

Off topic but OSU is also doing a joint venture with the Cherokee Nation for a satellite medical school in Tahlequah.  https://www.oklahoman.com/story/special/2021/04/15/osu-cherokee-nation-open-first-medical-school-tribal-land/4674613001/

TU offers first and second year classes through its College of Health Sciences which is in the old BCBS building downtown.

From an article when the school was created:

I guess I didn't realize MD's took four years to complete - I was thinking it was 3 years plus a residency. I'm guessing then OU Tulsa doesn't offer the first two years of an MD program in Tulsa but only in Norman/OKC so TU then fills that void? Students at TU just automatically transfer into OU Tulsa after completing the first two years I'm guessing and your final degree comes from OU.

Interesting that they noted that applications are up over 100%. While I'm not a fan of many of ORU's general beliefs/policies having a growing university is a good thing for the city. There has been a lot of capital injected into the university over the last few years. They just need to figure out a way to get more students to graduate... they have about a 40% graduation rate which is pretty awful. ORU brings in a lot of students from out of state and out of the country, it really could be a big economic driver for the city if it really takes off. 

...

I feel similarly. I am both happy to see more higher ed investment and gritting my teeth at the fact that it is to a system with such bigoted beliefs. Thankfully not all at ORU share all the viewpoints of their leadership.

The Mabee Center is certainly an economic engine. Aside from the basketball team, it hosts a lot of events. It will be good to see the basketball team continue to make waves and get our city into the limelight more.
