Funds from Vision 2025 are provided to construct a 100,000-square-foot Research and Medical Clinic located at the OU-Tulsa Schusterman Center (41st & Yale, Tulsa) that integrates teaching, research, and service. The clinic will offer extended hours to serve the medically needy which will reduce the burden on emergency rooms. New research will advance health care initiatives while also stimulating the economy as funding moves through the community.
The economic impact of the clinic is estimated to be $1.5 billion over 15 years. The new clinic and research facility will create more than 3,000 new jobs over 15 years and allow for an increase in the number of patients from 82,000 to 130,000 annually. The number of medical students is expected to grow from 60 students per year to more than 100 students per year. Resident physician capacity will increase from 160 residents per year to 200 per year. Research funding is expected to grow from $1 million per year to $5
