St. Anthony’s Family Medicine Clinic opened in 1992 and is a health care safety net for many of our community’s most at-risk, disadvantaged and vulnerable individuals. The number of patient visits has increased by 60% in just the past 3 years!
Join us in extending our healing Mission. Donate to the “Let’s Make Room” Campaign for Family Medicine.
Staffed by 38 physicians and residents, the Clinic is currently crammed into a space originally designed for 11 physicians and far, far fewer patients. This outdated space impairs providing wraparound services for patients and their families, educating and training residents, and seeing the number of patients who seek our care.
Primary Care is the bedrock of health care for the communities we serve. For many years, SSM Health St. Anthony has understood this and has committed to the development of great primary care services throughout Oklahoma. For 29 years, the Family Medicine Clinic has been providing primary care in the heart of Oklahoma City and the SSM Health St. Anthony Family Medicine Residency Program has been training exceptional primary care physicians.
With the expansion, the number of patient rooms will increase from 18 to 36. Subsequently, patient visits can grow from 26,000 to over 40,000, lessening the burden on our overcrowded emergency department.
Patient rooms will be equipped for three-way virtual communication between patient, family and physicians. Individual rooms will be added for patients to meet with a social worker or legal aid professional.
A pharmacy, kitchen for diabetic education and training, and meeting rooms for community education, coordination of care meetings and residency training will also be added. The new “high-tech” and “high-touch” clinic will be structured for efficient flow, patient privacy, and maximum resident-faculty interaction.
The clinic will move out of the basement of the main SAH building to the 3rd Floor of St. Anthony Bone & Joint Hospital.
The new space will be over 9,000 sq. ft. larger than the current location.
Patient rooms will increase to 36 from the current 18. Rooms will be equipped for 3-way virtual communication.
Patient visits are expected to increase from 26,000 to over 40,000 annually when the clinic is expanded.
The expansion includes a new Residency Center and upgrades to the program that helps train exceptional primary care physicians.
