As the Oklahoma Heart Hospital South Campus opens it's doors, residents on this side of the metro are finally getting services they've needed for years. One of their greatest needs was an emergency room.
"There isn't a hospital in this part of town, so we expect the emergency room to be busy," said Dr. John Harvey, Heart Hospital CEO.
With just a snip of the scissors this emergency room and hospital is now open for business.
The all digital hospital is almost an exact replica of the successful heart hospital in north Oklahoma City.
While the main goal of thisnew hospital is to treat patients on the south side, elected officials know this addition could mean much more for our community.
"It''s an opportunity for us to go to future businesses that we want to bring here and existing businesses and say please expand here," said Lt. Gov. Jari Askins, (D) Oklahoma.
