OU dedicates Tisdale health clinic

The OU Wayman Tisdale Specialty Health Clinic, established by the University of Oklahoma to address significant health disparities in Tulsa and provide quality health care to citizens of north, east and west Tulsa, is fulfilling that goal after its first year of operation. The clinic, named in memory of the late OU and NBA basketball star, Olympic gold medalist and musician Wayman Tisdale, was formally dedicated Monday.

“We are honored that this facility bears the name of Wayman Tisdale, who was well known for his caring spirit,” OU President David L. Boren said. “This clinic will allow us to provide better medical care for the citizens in the surrounding area.”

The Tisdale Clinic was built in response to a study showing a considerably lower life expectancy and far fewer physicians in north Tulsa compared to south Tulsa. The initial goal was to provide vitally needed specialty care for this underserved area. Today, the clinic offers treatment in 16 medical specialties.

OU physicians have conducted almost 12,000 patient visits at Tisdale in this first year of operation, with the majority from Tulsa, followed by Sapulpa, Sand Springs, Owasso, Claremore, Broken Arrow and many other towns across the state, including rural areas. The clinic is also becoming a regional health care destination, drawing patients from Kansas, Missouri, Arkansas, Colorado and other states.

OU-Tulsa President Gerard P. Clancy, M.D., said the facility is more than a clinic.
