Francis Tuttle Unveils Health Sciences Center


Davis, KirLee, THE JOURNAL RECORD


Francis Tuttle will unveil its $5 million Health Sciences Center with a dedication and open house celebration beginning 3:30 p.m. Friday.

The research-driven vision behind the center is to incorporate "the best components from around the country into one facility," said officials with the technology center.

Dr. Mary Ann Bauman, director of Integris women's health, will present the keynote speech at the ceremony. A reception and tours will be available after the dedication, which coincides with the Oklahoma Legislators Experience Career Tech Day.

The 60,000-square-foot center offers degrees for assistants in dental, veterinary, nurse and other medical fields, including advanced unlicensed; practical nursing; respiratory care; and orthotic and prosthetic technician. It was built by contractors Nashert Constructors and Shiloh Enterprises from designs by Frankfurt-Short-Bruza Associates.

Dr. Anthony Economou, a glaucoma specialist and surgeon with BVA, has adopted a new treatment, which is called the Ahmed Valve. It is reserved for glaucoma patients who have not received restored vision following cataract surgery with implants. Under the procedure, the tiny, flat plastic valve is inserted in the eye, under the eyelid, to reduce intraocular pressure by draining excess aqueous humor. "We are restoring vision in many patients who were blinded by glaucoma," he noted.
