ICU Nurses Station: 405-717-7850
Our goal is to provide absolutely the best care for your family.
Please feel free to ask questions and be involved in the care process. We ask that you appoint one contact person for the nursing staff to provide a constant flow of information. A marker board is provided for this purpose in the patient's room or a note can also be left in the chart. This allows the staff to focus more on patient care.
