Uncompromising Quality

Our commitment to quality and safety pushes us to achieve superior measurable clinical outcomes while providing constant attention to patient safety, comfort and convenience. This is attained through efficient and effective clinical operations.  Doing this, OU Medicine strives to be among the highest ranking health care providers, as determined by both regulatory and health care scoring systems. 

Exceptional Service

At OU Medicine, exceptional service begins with a culture of service excellence. This culture insists on responsibility, accountability and courtesy.  In this culture, we are creating efficient and convenient access to our health care system for patients and physicians. OU Medicine has the tools to foster this culture of service excellence and we will uphold performance standards across the enterprise to promote consistently positive experiences for our patients, staff and community. 

Innovative Education

OU Medicine will conduct high quality medical education programs for all health care providers. Through innovative education, OU Medicine will attract, develop and retain outstanding faculty and students. We will continuously develop and refine education programs for students and trainees by providing modern, up-to-date and technically sophisticated facilities and equipment for contemporary medical education and training. 

Advancing Knowledge

OU Medicine will concentrate basic and translational research by expanding and/or creating the infrastructure necessary to support enlarging our clinical research programs. We will apply our strengths to developing new therapies and new technologies in carefully selected areas. OU Medicine will also advance knowledge through clinical trials at the Stephenson Cancer Center and other medical disciplines. 

Institutional Strength

OU Medicine invests in people, technologies and facilities that will enable us to achieve our mission, vision and goals. Through our institutional strength, The Children's Hospital will be the recognized regional provider of outstanding services for children's health care.  We will grow specific programs to better serve patients and physicians throughout our state and region, and by this, we will preserve a focus of responsibility and multidisciplinary planning.
