Richie Splitt, Vice President & Chief Administrative Officer, Norman Regional Moore & HealthPlex

As construction continues on the new state-of-the-art Norman Regional Moore facility, we continue to serve the community we love in many ways.

Our temporary Emergency Services provides fast, convenient and high quality life-saving care 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Our highly trained healthcare professionals are here for you when you need us most. Since opening in December 2013, we attended to nearly 30,000 patients at the Emergency Department, performed almost 4,900 CT studies, 3,800 plus Ultrasound studies, and well over 13,500 x-ray studies. We also offer outpatient imagining and lab services at this convenient close to home location.

Another lifesaving service for the community will begin October 1, 2015. Norman Regional's award winning EMSSTAT will provide emergency medical ambulance services to the community of Moore. EMSSTAT has 20 years of experience providing top-notch emergency care for Norman and the surrounding area (approximately 400 square miles). We are looking forward to offering around the clock paramedic-level ambulance services to the community of Moore.

In addition, we offer various free community screenings and informational talks throughout the year. This month we will offer a free skin cancer screening to community members Saturday, September 12, 9-11 am at the Norman Regional Hospital Cancer Management Center. Next month on Halloween we will help community members say “Boo!” to the flu with a free flu clinic for adults. The flu shots will be offered at the temporary Moore Physical Therapy site located on Telephone Road just west of the Emergency Services buildings and north of the Warren Theater.

We continue to provide the best healthcare to the community of Moore in so many ways, from our physicians’ offices, community outreach programs, the temporary Emergency Services building, outpatient diagnostic imaging and laboratory services, and now through the addition of the EMSSTAT ambulance services. Norman Regional Health System is your hometown healthcare provider. We are where the healing begins.
