— Location: 1000 N Lee Ave.

— History: St. Anthony Hospital celebrated its 112th birthday on Aug. 1. Two Sisters from the order of the Sisters of St. Francis traveled from Missouri to Oklahoma City in search of funds to support their local hospital but were asked to stay and open the first hospital in Oklahoma City. In 1898, the small house opened its doors with 12 patient beds.

Highlights

— The hospital specializes in surgery, oncology, cardiology and behavioral medicine.

— The hospital recently became the location of the first InQuickER site in the state, and fifth in the nation to offer the service that guarantees patients will see a physician, physician assistant or nurse practitioner within 15 minutes of the appointment time at the emergency department.

— Saints First Telemedicine Network began this year, reaching seven affiliates in rural Oklahoma.
