The largest hospital expansion project in Oklahoma history achieved a major construction milestone, Wednesday, November 6, as the OU Medicine patient tower reached its highest structural point.

“Skill, expertise, experience and talent all contribute to successful outcomes in any field of endeavor,” said Ian Dunn, M.D., chair, department of Neurosurgery, University of Oklahoma College of Medicine. “And in every field, the craftsman, artisan, or physician is capable of delivering a more satisfying product or experience when he or she has the best tools and the best equipped environment in which to work. That’s what the new patient tower represents. Working as a team, we optimize our skills   for the benefit of every patient who crosses the threshold of this center of health and healing.”
