Moore ER surpasses 3,000 patients served while $28.8M rebuilding project continues

(Continued)

NORMAN —

In October, the Norman Regional Hospital Authority approved plans for a five-story, 100,000-square-foot, $28.8 million facility for the Moore Medical Center rebuild. The new medical center will offer emergency and outpatient services, as well as lab and imaging such as ultrasound and X-ray.

Up to 80,000 square feet of medical office space will accommodate displaced physicians, other physicians and specialists and additional outpatient and ancillary services. Community education meeting space will accommodate 50 to 100 people for medical education, health screenings and meetings.

The proposed design will feature a modern look to go with a modern vision. The center will look similar to the HealthPlex, and Splitt said it will provide convenience of access.

Future phases could include physical therapy and a birthing center. If the market merits, the design allows for a possible expansion corridor that would allow for a patient tower with inpatient beds.

“This will be a development structure unlike anything we’ve seen today,” Splitt said following the October decision. “Modern health care today demands that we are efficient.”

The structure will make use of vertical space for a smaller footprint than the previous 45-bed hospital. The new facility is projected to open in 2016.
