Integris Baptist Medical Center | 100 Great Hospitals in America 2015

Integris Baptist Medical Center (Oklahoma City). In 1959, a 200-bed Integris Baptist Medical Center opened in Oklahoma City. Nearly 60 years later, the hospital now has 511 beds and features an array of Centers of Excellence, including Integris Heart Hospital, Hough Ear Institute, Nazih Zuhdi Transplant Institute, Paul Silverstein Burn Center and Henry G. Bennet Jr. Fertility Institute, among others.

The hospital also features a robust Hyperbaric Medicine and Wound Center and, in 1989, became the first hospital in Oklahoma to have a hyperbaric oxygen chamber. Then in 1995, Integris Baptist installed the state's largest hyperbaric oxygen chamber, which can treat 12 patients at a time. More than 500 patients between 5 months and 92 years old have received therapy in the new chamber since it was installed.

Integris Health, the parent company of the hospital, is also the official healthcare provider of the Oklahoma City Thunder, the local NBA team.

Integris Baptist is a Magnet-designed hospital, as determined by the American Nurses Credentialing Center. In 2014-15, U.S. News & World Report ranked the hospital No. 1 in Oklahoma.
