INTEGRIS Health shoots for integrity by providing a range of health services to residents throughout the Sooner state. The company, one of Oklahoma's largest not-for-profit health care organization, operates more than a dozen hospitals with some 900 combined beds in both urban and rural communities. The hospitals provide services including primary, diagnostic, emergency, surgical, behavioral, therapeutic, and rehabilitative care. INTEGRIS also operates specialty facilities for the treatment of hearing disorders and neuromuscular ailments, and for rehabilitation care. The company operates assisted living centers and a home health agency, plus a network of physician clinics and ambulatory care centers.
INTEGRIS Health was formed in 1983 to lend managerial and administrative support to INTEGRIS Baptist Medical Center, an acute care hospital in northwestern Oklahoma City. In 1994, it merged with Baptist Healthcare of Oklahoma, adding a statewide network of rural hospitals to the organization. In 1995, it merged with Southwest Medical Center, an acute care hospital in southwestern Oklahoma City. All of that deal making made the health system the largest state-owned health care system in Oklahoma.
As if it wasn't enough to own and operate more than a dozen hospitals, INTEGRIS Health opened a $90-million, 40-bed hospital in Edmond, Oklahoma. INTEGRIS Health Edmond opened in 2011. The hospital was built with room to grow in the future.
In 2012 it formed a joint venture with Health Management Associates (HMA) to share ownership and operation of five smaller hospitals in Oklahoma. As part of the deal, HMA took an 80% controlling interest and took over day-to-day management of the hospitals.
INTEGRIS Health offers its residence with more life experience such services as senior seminars and classes, health screenings, support groups, technology classes to help keep seniors up to date on computer use, and such. The idea is to help keep the elderly as independent as possible for as long as possible. – less
