In 2009, ownership of OSUMC was transferred to a municipal-owned trust.  This action preserved the state’s osteopathic physicians’ training program and guaranteed Tulsans, particularly the medically underserved, access to quality health care.  Since every public hospital and teaching hospital in America is subsidized, public funding is essential to OSUMC’s survival.  In May 2013, the State approved a $13 million appropriation for OSUMC.  With the State’s plan to leverage federal funds, OSUMC was able to reach the $18.25 million that it originally requested from the State.

 In order to accept State funding directly, OSUMC is being transferred to a state trust governed by the Oklahoma State University Medical Authority (OSUMA), an agency of the State of Oklahoma. The anticipated date for OSUMC to become a direct funding responsibility and a healthcare agent for the State of Oklahoma is October 10, 2013.  Other facets associated with the transfer to OSUMA are expected to be completed by the end of calendar year 2013.  State funding has helped anchor OSUMC, so it can move forward in securing a private partner and advancing its important twofold mission.
