Foundation for Medical Quality Moves Its Offices


Carter, Ray, THE JOURNAL RECORD


The Oklahoma Foundation for Medical Quality is moving from its current location at the Paragon Building to the Quail Springs Parkway Plaza.

The new office space consists of 29,463 square feet of offices, reception and meeting rooms on a single floor. The foundation plans to be situated at the new space, located at 14000 Quail Springs Parkway, by Nov. 1, said Lynne Keller, administrative services manager.

The Oklahoma Foundation for Medical Quality's fourth floor has four conference rooms, including a boardroom. The boardroom adjoins the large conference room with a moveable wall to create one large room for company-wide meetings, which the organization lacks at its old quarters.

Sherwin Nuland, a surgeon and Yale educator who is author of How We Die, will speak at the University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center as part of the dedication of the new central campus gardens at noon Thursday at the Stanton L. Young Walk.

Nuland will offer brief remarks at the dedication, and will present a keynote address to the student body at 2 p.m. in the OU Medical Center Conference Center, located on the fifth floor of Nicholson Tower at Children's Hospital.

"The dedication of the new central campus gardens will mark one of the largest landscaping projects in the history of the state of Oklahoma," said OU President David L. Boren. "It will create a beautiful and healing environment for patients, their families and our faculty, students and staff."

The beautification project, which was funded with private donations, cost $6.2 million.
