OSU opens new health clinic in east Tulsa
TULSA, Okla. (AP) - Oklahoma State University's Center for
Health Sciences has opened a clinic in what OSU officials say is an
underserved area of east Tulsa.
Howard Barnett, the president of OSU's Tulsa campus and the
Center for Health Sciences, spoke Thursday during a ceremony
marking the facility's opening. He says the clinic was placed in
east Tulsa after OSU officials identified the area as needing
additional health care resources.
The clinic is the seventh operated by OSU in Oklahoma. It will
provide comprehensive family medical care including pediatrics,
prenatal care, women's health and adult medicine.
Francisco Trevino, the president of the Tulsa Hispanic Chamber,
says many of the city's Hispanic residents live in east Tulsa and
that it's important for them to have affordable and reliable health
care options such as the OSU clinic.
