Richie Splitt, Vice President & Chief Administrative Officer, Norman Regional Moore & HealthPlex
Construction on the new Norman Regional Moore facility is progressing nicely. In fact, we will celebrate a construction milestone this month by marking the topping out of the building. This will signify construction on the building has reached its structural height of 76 feet.
Once completed, this four-story $29 million dollar state-of-the-art health complex will include 42,940 linear feet of plumbing and mechanical piping. That’s the equivalent of 64,410 bananas (or 46,844 footballs) lying end to end! In addition, the total water output from the facility mechanical room pumps will be powerful enough to fill more than eight fire trucks per minute.
Scheduled to open in Spring 2016, Norman Regional Moore will include full emergency services, diagnostic imaging, physical therapy, laboratory services, physician offices, community education and meeting space. All will be staffed by great physicians and staff eager to continue serving you from the new, permanent location. The high quality patient care and services you’ve come to know and expect from Norman Regional Health System will soon be available in an exceptionally modern facility that is both convenient and close to home.
We are very enthusiastic about the progress on the new building. Until we open in the Spring of 2016, we are proud to continue serving you and your loved ones through the temporary facilities on the site of the former Moore Medical Center featuring a 24-hour Emergency Department, physical therapy, outpatient laboratory and imaging services.
Norman Regional Health System is privileged to be your trusted and local healthcare provider. This is where the healing begins.
