The authority will move to a renovated hotel on Lincoln Boulevard, north of the Capitol.

“It's been a long time coming, as you know, and I was really, really hoping to get that lease signed while I still have the authority to sign it,” Fogarty said.

The meeting was Fogarty's last meeting as CEO of the agency. Fogarty's last day at the Oklahoma Health Care Authority is March 1. The board selected Nico Gomez to serve as Fogarty's replacement.

Fogarty has been CEO of the authority for a majority of the time it has existed. The Legislature created the authority in 1993. Fogarty has been CEO since 1999 and attributed much of the agency's success to the staff.

“It has been successful because I was fortunate enough to have inherited and then add to an incredible group of people who come here every day fully committed to take care of Oklahomans,” Fogarty said.
