Proud to work at CoxHealth
“I would like to say thank you to our ER staff for being efficient, kind and explaining everything they were doing…The staff were extremely responsive and did a wonderful job keeping me calm. I was in a room and had an EKG within about 5 minutes of checking in. I am an employee and am proud to say I work at CoxHealth.”
Voice of the patient
“I’m from Tulsa, OK; I was treated like ‘someone special.’ I am not a ‘hospital rookie’ – many hospital experiences. My overnight stay was a totally positive experience. There is nothing you could have done to make it any better! On a scale of 1 to 10 with 10 being best, I would give you a 20.”
Thank you for everything you do to support our patients and our community,
