Ensuring A Healthier Tomorrow For All Oklahomans

The University Hospitals Authority and Trust, UHAT, was formed as part of an historic agreement that united the state, a private corporation and the University of Oklahoma in a partnership many credit with moving health care in Oklahoma toward world-class status. University Hospitals Authority and Trust devotes its resources to a variety of projects on campus. Its mission is to be a catalyst for medical excellence, to support medical education and research, and to help assure quality health care for all Oklahomans.

To that end, UHAT proudly provides support for important educational enhancements, for key research and health care advancements and for critical capital improvement projects on campus, including the new College of Medicine, Andrews Academic Office Tower, the Nicholson Tower facade, the new Children’s Hospital entry and OU Health External Wayfinding project.

Through projects like these, the University Hospitals Authority and Trust carries out its mission; and through its leadership, state and federal resources are maximized to ensure a dependable source of revenue for growth, development and a healthier tomorrow for all Oklahomans.
