Careers at OU Health
Purpose. That’s what sets healthcare workers apart. The sense that you are truly making a difference in people’s lives. At OU Health, we offer many opportunities to make a difference.
OU Health — along with its academic partner, the University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center — is the state’s only comprehensive academic health system of hospitals, clinics and centers of excellence. With 11,000 employees and more than 1,300 physicians and advanced practice providers, OU Health is home to Oklahoma’s largest physician network with a complete range of specialty care. OU Health serves Oklahoma and the region with the state’s only freestanding children’s hospital, the only National Cancer Institute-Designated Stephenson Cancer Center and Oklahoma’s flagship hospital, which serves as the state’s only Level 1 trauma center.
Community Impact & Mission
With 804 hospital beds, OU Health acts as a safety net hospital for Oklahoma County and the state of Oklahoma. In 2019 alone, OU Health provided $115 million in charity care for uninsured patients and unreimbursed services. OU Health also serves a disproportionate number of underserved communities, including older adults and children from low-income families. Often relying on government payors, more than 60% of our patients have highly complex health needs. The variety of our patients and our services aligns with the principles of our mission: patient care, education and research to improve the lives of all people.
