OCU enters new partnership for campus clinic
Oklahoma City University is partnering with Family HealthCare and Minor Emergency Clinic to operate its campus health clinic, beginning Oct. 8. It will serve the university and the broader community with family health care services.
Antonia Pratt-Reid, APRN, CNP, owns and operates the local clinic and will provide expanded services and improved access, including same-day appointments.
Family HealthCare and Minor Emergency Clinic @ OCU hours are 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday. Appointments can be made by calling 405-373-2400.
In addition to employees and students on a university health plan, the clinic accepts patients with most major insurance carriers and provides special pricing for the uninsured.
“One of the missions for our clinic has always been to serve all patients,” Reid said.
OCU President Martha Burger said she is pleased the clinic will provide a greater variety of services for the campus community and that this partnership will provide a new way to reach out to the surrounding community.
Reid explained that family care extends from newborns to geriatric patients and includes minor emergency care as well as occupational health.
Family HealthCare and Minor Emergency Clinic opened its doors in far northwest Oklahoma City in October 2001. In a small, 1,000-square-foot space, the clinic opened to serve the needs of north Canadian County as the first independently owned nurse practitioner clinic in Oklahoma. In the following years, Reid was instrumental in expanding the ability of advanced practice registered nurses to serve patients in Oklahoma.
