Construction Begins on Replacement Medical Center in Oklahoma

NORMAN – Construction on Norman Regional Health System’s new medical facility in Moore, Oklahoma has begun. The $29-million medical facility will be located on the site of the former Moore Medical Center hospital, which was destroyed in the May 2013 tornado.

“Our physicians, staff and volunteers look forward to rebuilding a state-of-the-art medical facility dedicated to serving the current and future needs of our community,” said Richie Splitt, vice president and chief administrative officer, Norman Regional Moore and HealthPlex. “We are excited as we move forward in our efforts to continue providing Moore with the top-quality medical care the community has come to know and trust from Norman Regional.”

The new medical facility will include:

  • Full emergency services
  • Outpatient diagnostic imaging
  • Physical medicine
  • Laboratory services
  • Physician offices
  • Community education and meeting space

The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, CMS, recently set new guidelines for related healthcare provider naming of facilities and services. The new guidelines required Norman Regional to change the way the facilities were branded so they would better fall in line with their CMS license name, Norman Regional. The new requirements affected the entire Health System and as part of this change, the new medical facility in Moore will be called Norman Regional Moore.
