More from first year

More than 13,000 radiology visits have taken place, including inpatients and outpatients. Williams said that is 30 percent higher than expected.

Physical therapists have recorded more than 5,000 patient visits.

PWR! Up, a new program for Parkinson's patients, is offered here. Samantha Klepper, Edmond's Jim Thorpe lead physical therapist, is one of the Oklahoma therapists affiliated with PWR! Up and does the training in Edmond.

Hospital officials have conducted more than 2,000 surgeries and colonoscopies and 13,000 outpatient respiratory treatments.

Regional service

The hospital is serving not only the Edmond community, but patients in Logan County, Wellston, Stillwater, Arcadia and other areas.

“People like not having to go into the city,” Williams said. “They seem to like being in a smaller environment.”

There are 255 physicians on staff. The hospital has 200 employees who make an average of $27 an hour.

The hospital is adding a suite with a heart catheterization laboratory and advance radiology equipment. The suite is being designed in shell space included in the building at the time of construction with expansion in mind.

The hospital has a full-service emergency department, six intensive care units, 10 labor and delivery units and four surgical suites.

“It doesn't seem like a year,” Williams said. “It seems like just yesterday. It has been a successful year.”
