Tulsa, OK – Our mission has always been bold: serving Tulsa seniors in the spirit of Christ. Five years ago we launched a capital campaign based on our vision of serving this generation and the generations to come. Today we are proud to announce that we have REACHED our goal! Thanks to Paula Marshall, Honorary Campaign Chair, the Campaign Cabinet, Board of Trustees and hundreds of incredibly generous donors.
“Simply amazing,” CEO of Oklahoma Methodist Manor, Steve Dickie said. “The response from our community, businesses, neighbors and friends has been overwhelming. We are forever grateful to all of our donors. We are so pleased to officially announce that we have achieved our goal, and that OMM will be able to continue to care for the emotional, physical and spiritual needs of those we serve.”
Planning for the Capital Campaign began in November of 2014. After conducting feasibility and cost studies, OMM leadership and community volunteers launched Phase I that resulted in $8.5 million to help fund a new Assisted Living Center and two Memory Care Houses. In 2018, Phase II of the campaign was launched, which will fund a new Community Life Center. With help from dozens of campaign volunteers, the community responded with hundreds of individual gifts, pushing the overall total to over $13.4 million as of the end of August.
“This year we will open the Holliman Living Center and break ground on the Marshall-Gaddy and Barnes Memory Care Houses, as well as the new Community Life Center,” said Dickie. “I am still in awe of the support from our members, board and the Tulsa community. When you undertake a goal like this you do it very thoughtfully and know it will be a journey – all I can say is I am truly humbled and thank you.”
OMM has been a leader in serving Tulsa seniors for over a six decades. Through this campaign OMM will be able to expand and meet the growing demand for assisted living and specialized memory care living. The new buildings on campus will only enhance the person centered-care elders receive at OMM.
Oklahoma Methodist Manor was founded in 1956 as a non-profit organization dedicated to serving Tulsa seniors in the spirit of Christ. Today OMM serves an average of 380 persons with a full continuum of care including residential living, assisted living, rehabilitative therapy, nursing care and skilled memory care.
