TULSA COUNTY, Oklahoma - St. Francis Health System is celebrating the opening of its new Glenpool facility.

Located on Highway 75 and 151st street south it has the area's first free-standing emergency room and offers additional outpatient services to the community.

"By providing greater access, we will only enhance what are efforts going on in many parts of Tulsa County already, but really had not occurred in this part of the county," said St. Francis Health Systems President and CEO Jake Henry Jr.

This is the health system's largest expansion since the opening of its Tulsa Trauma Emergency Center and 150-patient bed tower in 2014.
