Richie Splitt, Vice President & Chief Administrative Officer, Norman Regional Moore & HealthPlex
Norman Regional Health System remains committed to serving the community of Moore. Only six months after the May 20, 2013 tornado destroyed Moore Medical Center we opened our temporary facilities on the site of the former hospital. Since that time we have served the emergency needs of the community with our temporary Emergency Services facility, which has seen well over 22,000 patients. In addition, we also offer outpatient laboratory, diagnostic imaging and physical therapy services at this convenient location.
Meanwhile, construction on the new Norman Regional Moore facility continues to progress. If you've driven by 700 South Telephone Road recently you have seen the building is really starting to take shape. The first and second floors have been poured and we are well on our way to framing the third and fourth stories. Once the framework has reached the building's full height we will celebrate the milestone with a topping off ceremony and begin planning for the grand opening festivities.
Our physicians and staff are excited for the opening of the new $29 million dollar state-of-the-art health complex in Spring 2016. Patient services at Norman Regional Moore will include full emergency services, diagnostic imaging, physical therapy, laboratory services, physician offices, community education and meeting space, as well as an inspirational public art piece serving as an iconic entry point for the new healthcare facility. All of these will be available with the convenience of close to home services.
It is thrilling to know we are approximately one year from the opening of the new Norman Regional Moore healthcare facility. What a privilege it is for Norman Regional to be your healthcare provider in Moore. This is where the healing begins.
