Tulsa's OSU Medical Center Monday invited lawmakers to see the work it is doing, caring for the underserved in Green Country.

The medical center trains physicians and is the largest Osteopathic teaching hospital in the nation.

OSU Medical Center said Monday's tour was a show of appreciation for the state's $13 million commitment last year.

"Gives us an opportunity to say thank you and see what they committed to and our patients and our staff," said the hospital's chief executive officer, Diane Rafferty.

The OSU emergency room receives more than 45,000 visits each year, and is staffed mostly by OSU residents and graduates.
