TOUR: New Oklahoma medical facility opens during global pandemic https://kfor.com/digital-first/tour-new-oklahoma-medical-facility-opens-during-global-pandemic/

It includes more than 140 additional beds and the latest in medical technology.

At more than 450,000 square feet, the North Tower is the largest hospital expansion project in Oklahoma history...  ...“There will be two floors dedicated to cancer to support our Stephenson Cancer Center, a surgical oncology floor and then a floor for hematology-oncology patients and bone marrow transplant, stem cell therapy, and then there will be the medical ICU floor, that is Covid at this point in time, and we will have a cardiovascular institute,” said Gose. “So those will be all of our growth areas, but it also allows us to then take other service lines like neurosciences, orthopedics, geriatric trauma and grow and expand them in our current tower, our South Tower.”


Over the past decade more than $400 million has been committed to support the development of the Stephenson Cancer Center, making it the largest public-private biomedical partnership in state history.


                    OU Medical Center Patient Tower Project cost:  $364 million

Eight stories make up the new addition, with the ability to build four more in the future. The facility’s fruition comes right in the middle of a global pandemic.

Oklahoma City Chesapeake Energy Arena's naming rights to be terminated early.


Chesapeake Energy Arena


Ford Center

The ‘Peake, as it affectionately is called, was initially christened the Ford Center when Oklahoma City cut the ribbon and opened the arena for public use in June 2003 through an agreement reached between SMG, the contractor hired to run the facility, and the automotive giant.


Chesapeake, which recently emerged from bankruptcy, had a 12-year agreement worth $34 million for the naming rights beginning in 2011.

There will be a new name on the building where the Oklahoma City Thunder play their home games, but it's not clear what that name will be or when the change will take place.

Oklahoma City metro would gain legislative seats under redistricting proposal




Proposed redistricting maps for Oklahoma's 149 legislative districts that GOP state lawmakers unveiled Wednesday show the Oklahoma City metro area gaining one Senate seat and one House seat.

In the past 10 years, population in Oklahoma, Cleveland and Canadian counties grew by about 140,000 people, said Sen. Lonnie Paxton, R-Tuttle, chairman of the Senate Select Committee on Redistricting.

Redistricting occurs every decade following the Census. Oklahoma’s constitution requires state lawmakers to pass new legislative districts by the end of the 2021 legislative session, which must conclude by 5 p.m. on May 28.

State lawmakers will undertake congressional redistricting in a special session likely in October. The Census Bureau said redistricting data will be delivered to states by September 30.


The Oklahoma City metro area is slated to gain Senate District 18 and House District 36 as a result of population gains.

Senate District 18, which currently covers parts of Cherokee, Mayes, Muskogee, Tulsa and Wagoner counties, is currently represented by Senate Majority Leader Kim David, who will be term limited out of office in 2022.

The House plan retains a majority Hispanic district in Oklahoma City and three majority African American districts, two of which are in Oklahoma City and one in Tulsa.

Legislative district maps will have to be approved through the typical legislative process. Maps will be introduced next week in the Senate Select Committee on Redistricting and the House State and Federal Redistricting Committee.

Oklahoma City Blessed Stanley Rother Shrine & Basilica


The structure can be seen from I-35 south at the vicinity of 89the right before you enter Moore.  

Upon completion of construction, the Basilica will be the largest Roman Catholic Church in Oklahoma with pews to accommode 2,000.





Bessed Stanley Rother Museum and Pilgrim Center


Soon to be named--Basilica

Project construction cost:  $40 million


What's left of Blessed Stanley Rother's remains will be moved for Resurrection Memorial Cemetery to its final resting place on the grounds of the Basilica.

The martyred priest's body was then placed in a new casket with golden vestments, along with a document signed by those in attendance. A ribbon was wrapped around the casket, sealed with the archdiocese's seal in wax.

The Salve Regina was sung as the casket was re-interred, and a prayer service followed.

“It was a holy day. Father Rother’s presence was felt by many, and we are blessed as the Catholic Church in Oklahoma to present Father Rother’s life to the world,” Archbishop Coakley commented.

A temporary sign now marks Fr. Rother's original gravesite in Okarche, located about 40 miles northwest of Oklahoma City, where the original vault and casket have been re-buried, and a permanent memorial marker is planned.
