Oklahoma State University Medical Center has been granted $4 million by Tulsa County Commissioners, who approved the funding as part of the American Rescue Plan.

OSU Medical Center is planning an expansion that will include a new veterans hospital and a psychiatric hospital.

The new veterans hospital will be located downtown at 7th and Houston.

“My fellow commissioners and I are working diligently to place ARP funding where it is needed most in our community. This proposed project lifts the standard of care for all Tulsans but specifically improves outcomes for our most at-risk Tulsa County residents," said Tulsa County Commission Chairman Stan Sallee.

This is the largest amount that Tulsa County has given out from the ARP expenditure since they received the first of two annual payments in May.

OSU Medical Center's expansion is supported through a partnership between the county, city, state, federal, and many private donors, including The Anne and Henry Zarrow Foundation.

“This is Tulsa’s opportunity to grow a true university medical campus engine here,” said Judy Zarrow Kishner, president of The Anne and Henry Zarrow Foundation. “There is no question that Tulsa County needs additional mental health beds and expanded services, and the State has been committed to helping us get there over the next few years.”

Chairman of the OSU Medical Center Trust, Jay Helm, welcomed the county commissioners to the local, state and federal partnerships that have made the expansion possible.

“This will be the largest development in downtown Tulsa since the Williams Center was built more than 40 years ago,” Helm said. “This will allow the OSU Medical Center to expand and train the physicians that Tulsa County and the state of Oklahoma will need in the future.”
