The University Hospitals Authority and Trust was formed as part of an historic agreement that united the state, a private corporation and the University of Oklahoma in a partnership many credit with moving health care in Oklahoma toward world-class status. The University Hospitals Authority and Trust devotes its resources to a variety of projects on campus. Its mission is to be a catalyst for medical excellence, to support medical education and research, and to help assure quality health care for all Oklahomans.
To that end, the Authority and Trust proudly provides support for important educational enhancements, for key research and health care advancements and for critical capital improvement projects on campus, including the new OU Physicians Building and phase two of the Stanton L. Young Biomedical Research Center.
Completed in 2001, the OU Physicians Building is now home to more than 130 outstanding physicians, providing an environment where patient care and the newest technology come together under one roof.
With the support of the University Hospitals Authority and Trust, phase two of the Biomedical Research Center has moved from vision to reality. The Center, which has been a hub of research of activity on campus, more than doubled in size with the completion of phase two, providing more research space where top scientists will continue their nationally and internationally renowned work in biomedicine, cancer, genetics and more.
Through projects like these, the University Hospitals Authority and Trust carries out its mission; and through its leadership, state and federal resources are maximized to ensure a dependable source of revenue for growth, development and a healthier tomorrow for all Oklahomans.
