TULSA, Oklahoma -- The University of Oklahoma hit a milestone Friday in a much needed health clinic in North Tulsa.

It hosted a topping off ceremony for the Wayman Tisdale Specialty Health Clinic being built at 36th Street North and Hartford.

Crews installed the last beam on Friday. OU says the $20 million clinic is about half-way finished and already it's having a positive impact on the community.

"You know already, even constructing the clinic we've brought jobs to North Tulsa to be able to build for us," Dr. Gerry Clancy, OU-Tulsa President, said. "We did that by intention and that's worked very well."

The clinic will focus on specialty care like cancer, diabetes and heart disease. It's scheduled to open in the spring of 2012.
