OSU Center for Health Sciences students and OSU Medical Center residents gathered Oct. 21 to recognize President Pro Tempore Brian Bingman and members of the Oklahoma Senate for supporting the teaching hospital and its mission.

Bingman expressed that the state's goal to improve the health outcomes in rural Oklahoma matches the mission of OSUMC to train more physicians. In May, Oklahoma Legislature provided $13 million in funding for the medical center as part of the state budget.

"All of Oklahoma will be big winners when we have more physicians in Oklahoma," Bingman said. "This is a big challenge our state faces but we know it's important and we will continue to work together to improve Oklahoma's health."

Bingman and Sens. Mark Allen, Rick Brinkley, Brian Crain, Nathan Dahm, Kim David and Eddie Fields toured the medical center before being recognized and presented with a framed photograph signed by OSU residents.

Dr. Steffen E. Carey, chief resident of family medicine at OSU Medical Center, and Heather Hardebeck, MS-II, highlighted the key role that the teaching facility plays in recruiting and training future physicians for Tulsa and Oklahoma.
