The University of Oklahoma formally dedicated the Wayman Tisdale Specialty Health Clinic Monday at 3 p.m. in north Tulsa.
The clinic, named after the late OU and NBA basketball star Wayman Tisdale, was built to bolster the health opportunities for those in north Tulsa, which are far fewer compared to other areas of Tulsa, according to a OU School of Community Medicine press release.
In the first year of operation, OU physicians have helped nearly 12,000 patients, primarily from Tulsa.
"The Tisdale Clinic is having a major positive impact," Sharon Hanson, chair of the Northstar Community Development Council said.
"It's created jobs for the area. And of course the most important benefit is that residents of north Tulsa and surrounding communities now have access to specialty health services," she said.
