“Each day, our employees strive to provide quality, compassionate care, and this recognition pays tribute to our entire Saint Francis family, which sets the bar high every single day.”

With hospitals in Tulsa, Muskogee, Vinita and Glenpool and Warren Clinics throughout the region, the Saint Francis Health System has more than 10,500 employees, making it the largest private employer in eastern Oklahoma.

For the 2022-23 rankings, U.S. News & World Report evaluated more than 4,500 hospitals across 15 specialties and 20 procedures and conditions.

The publication’s procedures and conditions methodology is based entirely on objective measures of quality, such as survival rates, patient experience and how successfully each hospital helps patients return home.
