Hi, everyone...need to ask a favor for a friend that's considering relocation, and since she isn't a member here and I am, I'm asking for her.


There are two hospitals in town...Integris and St. Marys...can anyone tell me opinions/facts/thoughts on both of these facilities? I need the good, the bad, the ugly---just the truth. What do the townsfolk think of these hospitals and the care there?


Thanks!

Integris is not limited to Enid. We moved to Integris after some not overly positive experiences with an other larger provider and are fairly happy. Our primary is directly affiliated, specialty services are available in a timely manner. lease have your friend check co-pays as some insurances changed rules when it comes to specialty providers.

Integris is a non profit based out of OKC that was originated by the Baptists. They have a number of hospitals around Oklahoma.

St Mary's is owned by Mercy hospitals out of St. Louis. They too have a lot of hospitals in the state. Both of the system have anchor hospitals in OKC.

My experience is second-hand from family and friends and is just a few years out of date, but my impression has been that in recent decades they seem about the same in reputation and have reasonably good quality. The two hospitals have always competed hard for patients. When one of them gets some new capability, the other tries to catch up as soon as it can. Because Enid is the most sophisticated treatment center for a large rural population extending over a hundred miles west and northwest, with a disproportionately elderly and ailing patient pool, I think that Enid offers better and more advanced care options than you might expect for such a small city. The down side is that it can be hard to find a doctor accepting new patients because they have so many patients. My parents had to change doctors a few times because of the doctor's move/retirement, and each time found only one available GP.
