The quality of life for residents in Broken Arrow is greatly enhanced by two excellent hospitals – St. John Broken Arrow and Saint Francis Hospital South. Here is some background on each:
St. John Broken Arrow
St. John Broken Arrow, part of Ascension, the nation's largest Catholic and nonprofit health system, is a 68-bed, not-for-profit hospital. The hospital offers private rooms and services including cardiology, gastroenterology, general surgery, orthopedics, pain management, pulmonary care and sports medicine. Healthgrades recognized the hospital in 2016 as one of America’s 100 Best Hospitals for Joint Replacement.
In the emergency room, board-certified doctors and registered nurses perform all types of medical procedures. St. John has an onsite laboratory for everything from simple blood tests to complex tissue biopsies. Also available to patients is pastoral care: team members believe that tending to a patient’s mind and spirit is an integral part of physical recovery.
The hospital has six operating rooms, two special procedure rooms and a recovery area. A 100,000-square-foot medical office building for physicians is connected to the hospital. St. John also partners with Tulsa Bone & Joint Associates to provide Broken Arrow Public Schools with a comprehensive sports medicine program.
