Membership Info

Despite a huge Collinsville benefit of two new Owasso hospitals, Oklahoma (& the nation) face an escalating health care crisis. I've included just a sample of Mr. Phillips' charts. The health care industry is the state's 2nd largest employer. 19% of Oklahomans do not have health insurance. There is no funded indigent health care in Tulsa Co. (like OKC has). -- Ted
