University of Oklahoma Medical Center (UOK)


OU Medicine is the partnership among the University of Oklahoma College of Medicine, the OU Medical Center including The Children's Hospital, OU Physicians and the University Hospitals Authority and Trust and the patient care, medical education and research programs and services they provide. As an academic medical center, it is our job to use our knowledge and research to serve the whole state, not just our community.

OU Medicine focuses on collaboration. We bring together doctors, nurses, researchers, specialized technologists, students and residents to solve medical challenges. The vision of OU Medicine is to be the premiere enterprise for advancing healthcare, medical education and research for the community, state and region. We are striving to improve the lives of all people. In order to accomplish this, we must continue to push the bar higher and higher in the delivery of patient care, medical education and research.

OU Medical Center, including The Children's Hospital at OU Medical Center is Oklahoma's largest and most comprehensive hospital. It is located in the heart of Oklahoma City, just minutes from the beautiful, new Bricktown area and the State Capital. We provide a full range of hospital services for every patient, from the smallest neonate to the most critically ill senior.

With more than 475 doctors, OU Physicians is the state's largest physician group and encompasses almost every adult and child specialty. Many OU Physicians have expertise in the management of complex conditions that is unavailable elsewhere in the state, region or sometimes even the nation. Some have pioneered surgical procedures or innovations in patient care that are world firsts. About 160 of these doctors are OU Children's Physicians. The majority of them are board-certified in children's specialties, and many provide pediatric-specific services unavailable elsewhere in the state.
