To provide quality-focused, cost-effective and family-based health services with dignity and respect to all people without regard to their finances, culture or lifestyle and to provide the information and support to promote their participation in health care decisions.
The vision of Morton Comprehensive Health Services is to develop the organizational strength through its board of directors and staff to provide quality-based and team-oriented health systems. These systems are developed to positively impact the quality of life for the communities we serve.
The patient is the foundation of the health system and is the catalyst for all organizational decisions. The health system identifies and uses the needs of the patient and community to springboard the development of programs that impact the community’s short- and long-term wellness.
The organization establishes collaborative relationships by developing a network to maximize resources in providing a continuum of care. The network must include other health care providers, institutions, agencies, businesses and communities.
Core Values: Integrity, Excellence, Respect
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 91 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 x-ray 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.
In 2008 and 2011, Morton was the recipient of the Gold Seal of ApprovalTM by The Joint Commission for “demonstrating the highest commitment to quality and safety to (its) patients, staff and its community.”
