INTEGRIS gives back to the community through food drive, expands in Edmond

By Staff Reports / PRESENTED BY INTEGRIS Health / Member News / November 10, 2020

At INTEGRIS, we continue to be humbled by the generous community support we are still receiving in the form of personal protective equipment, sanitation supplies and donated meals.

That’s why we decided to return the favor by holding an INTEGRIS Food Drive to benefit the Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma.

We know many Oklahomans are financially struggling right now because of the uncertain economy caused by the COVID-19 crisis. This is our way of giving back to the community who has supported us from the beginning of this ordeal.

This summer, we were able to deliver 2100 pounds of food and $682 in monetary donations to the Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma. In all, that equals a total of 4,343 meals provided by INTEGRIS Baptist Medical Center.

If you or your business are interested in donating to the Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma visit rfbo.org or call 405-972-1111 to learn more.

INTEGRIS Health Edmond expansion update

INTEGRIS Health Edmond is growing. In fact, it is more than doubling in size.

The $95 Million expansion project includes a new five-story tower, as well as additions to the existing facility.

The original 40-bed hospital will soon be equipped to offer 104 beds by the end of construction.

The new areas will open in phases. The INTEGRIS Health Edmond Women’s Center on the 4th floor was the first to open to the public on Aug. 22. The Med-Surg Unit, located on the 5th floor, will be the next to open this fall. Other departments to be housed in the new spaces will include an intensive care unit, surgery suites, a cath lab, a pharmacy, radiology and other support services.

“We are growing with the city of Edmond and the surrounding areas,” says Jon Rule, the chief hospital executive. “INTEGRIS Health Edmond is not just a hospital but a destination facility for patients around the state due to the advanced capabilities we have here, complimented by access to medical and surgical specialists.”

The entire expansion project should be complete by the spring of 2021.
