The Pavilion


The Pavilion, located at the East/Walker Avenue entrance of St. Anthony Hospital, houses a new, advanced Emergency Department, two Intensive Care Units, and a Progressive Care Unit. The expansion of the St. Anthony Hospital Midtown campus represents the crowning achievement of the $220 million campus development plan that began 12 years ago when the hospital decided to remain in its Midtown location. The expansion allows St. Anthony to care for more patients in a state-of-the-art setting and continue the hospital’s healing ministry of exceptional patient care that began in 1898 as the first hospital in the Oklahoma Territory.
