Morton is a Patient Centered Medical Home. Morton Comprehensive Health Services, Inc., a 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation, is one of Oklahoma’s largest community health centers in the state. For over 90 years, Morton has been providing comprehensive medical, dental and ancillary services to individuals regardless of race, religion, ethnicity, national origin or one’s ability to pay for services.
The history of Morton dates back to 1921 when the American Red Cross opened Maurice Willows Hospital in Tulsa North. In 1941, the City of Tulsa replaced the hospital with a new municipal hospital, Moton Memorial Hospital. The hospital was named after Robert Russa Moton, a former president of Tuskegee University. In 1968, the facility became Moton Health Center, an ambulatory care center.
In 1983, the center was renamed Morton Comprehensive Health Services in honor of W.A. Morton, M.D., a physician with a distinguished record of service at Moton. In 2008, Morton achieved accreditation status from The Joint Commission.
As a part of Vision 2025, Morton built a new 60,000 square foot facility on five acres in the Lansing Business Park in Tulsa. In October 2006, Morton opened the doors to the new location. In the clinic, Morton continues to offer adult medical care, dental, family care, obstetrics/gynecology, pediatrics, pharmaceutical, radiological, social and counseling services and transportation among other services. Recently, MCHS expanded its services into the areas of optometry and mammography.
Morton serves patients residing in more than 221 zip codes and 16 counties in northeastern Oklahoma. As a federally qualified health center, Morton additionally provides transportation services and Spanish language translation for its patients.
Since 2008, Morton has been the recipient of the Gold Seal of Approval™ by The Joint Commission for “demonstrating the highest commitment to quality and safety to its patients, staff and its community.”
