This recognition reflects the hospital’s continuous commitment to safety and quality patient care.

Tulsa ER & Hospital was subjected to a rigorous unannounced onsite assessment on Thursday, January 5, 2023. The CIHQ team toured the hospital, reviewed medical records, observed care practices, and interviewed staff and patients.

“CIHQ’ goal is to partner with hospitals to improve the care provided in our communities,” states Richard Curtis, Chief Executive Officer of CIHQ. “CIHQ is proud to recognize Tulsa ER & Hospital for achieving accreditation.”

“This re-accreditation reflects the continued commitment by all of the staff at Tulsa ER Hospital to provide quality healthcare for our patients.
