Expansion is the prevailing theme in the Oklahoma City market, even as health systems continue to respond to the COVID-19 pandemic. In the provider sector, key capital projects include hospital expansions by Integris Health, OU Medicine, and Norman Regional Health System. Norman Regional also has ambitious plans for a behavioral health center and a new cancer center, which could elevate the system's standing in the market. Payers, meanwhile, have won the opportunity to manage Oklahoma's Medicaid program, which is undergoing expansion under the Affordable Care Act, with the partial privatization of the program. Medicaid expansion will provide coverage to a projected 272,000 residents--a positive for pharma.
