Welcome to Oklahoma
Oklahoma is where the Midwest, South, and Southwest converge. That blending of cultures offers balance and many lovely surprises! With an exceptional art scene, eclectic districts with local flare, and an outdoor recreation renaissance centered around the city core, Oklahoma City's 1.4 million metropolitan residents are among the most satisfied in the nation.
Resident led tax initiatives have catalyzed new development, improved infrastructure, increased quality of life, and boosted business by $7 billion and counting. Low cost of living, short commutes, and a diversified economy beckon new residents, including Millennials, who rank it among the top three places to live.
Equidistant from both coasts and located at the crossroads of three major interstate highways, Oklahoma City ensures smooth travel and transportation to anywhere in the U.S. Just ninety minutes to Tulsa and three from Dallas, we are also within an easy drive to Wichita, Kansas City, and Little Rock. The Heartland Flyer Amtrak train provides twice-daily service to Fort Worth, while three airports host 150 flights from 21 non-stop destinations to supply commercial, corporate and leisure travel needs.
You may be considering many options professionally and personally. We want to help you navigate these opportunities as you establish your home, pursue your interests, grow professionally and flourish personally.

Quality of life in the OKC Metro
Oklahoma City may be "the best kept secret in the country", despite being recognized as the "Most Livable Community" and "Best Run Metro" and holding a recurring position for one of the 100 Best communities for Young People by the America's Promise Alliance.
The second lowest-property tax and cost of living in the nation, contributes to our rank as one of the top two cities for first-time homebuyers. CNBC determined Oklahoma City is the city with the highest discretionary income, making us one of the best places to find the home of your dreams, while building a healthy practice and securing your financial future.
Transplants call Oklahoma City a "dream come true" and are delighted when proved wrong about any initial misconceptions. People are willing to pause and enjoy their families and the satisfying things in life. Depth of character and integrity of both individuals and supportive corporate employers leave lasting impressions.
With an average of 235 sunny days and freezing temps occurring less than a dozen times a year, not to mention plentiful parking, the sweet life in Oklahoma City is hard to beat.
Nationally Recognized Education
Whether you prefer public, charter, or private education, Oklahoma City offers some of the best schools in the country. Five high schools in the Oklahoma City school district received gold or silver badge awards from U.S. News & World Report. Fifty-five schools in the region have been recognized as National Blue Ribbon Schools.
Oklahoma City Public Schools resolve that students "graduate ready to fulfill their unique purpose in a healthy, vibrant community" and commit to core values of Equity, Relationships, Communication, Service, Student Success, and Collaboration. In total, 11 of the top 15 schools in Oklahoma are in the metro area, making excellence in learning more accessible than ever.

SSM Health has announced that it is joining with the Catholic Health Association of the United States (CHA) in a new initiative to confront racism by achieving health equity. SSM Health joins 22 of the nation’s largest Catholic health care systems committed to confronting systemic racism by prioritizing equity in response to COVID-19; enacting change across their own health care systems by examining and changing hiring, promotion and retention practices to ensure diversity and inclusion; forming stronger partnerships with communities of color to improve health outcomes; and leveraging their united and powerful voice to advocate for policy changes that address the root causes of racism and social injustice.
“This past year has further demonstrated the important and influential role that health care systems can and should play in shaping local communities and society at large,” Joe Hodges, Regional President, SSM Health in Oklahoma. “SSM Health is proud to join this pledge and will continue taking bold steps to ensure better health for all – particularly those who are economically, physically and socially marginalized.”
Collectively, SSM Health and the other Catholic health organizations that have signed the pledge employ nearly a half million people across 46 states and the District of Columbia, and care for almost four million patients annually.
Recognizing that racism is an affront to the core values of Catholic social teaching, CHA members joined in solidarity to promote the common good and seek justice by being actively anti-racist and accountable in effecting positive change in the communities we serve.
Four focus areas
Act for COVID-19 equity: Members commit to ensuring that testing for COVID-19 is available and accessible in minority communities and that new treatments are distributed and used equitably as they become available. Members will also work for prioritization of vaccinations for those individuals and families at higher risk — elder populations and communities of color, including Native American communities.
Enact change across our own health systems: Members are examining how their organizations recruit, hire, promote and retain employees; how they conduct business operations, including visible diversity and inclusivity at the decision, leadership and governance levels; and how they incentivize and hold our leaders accountable.
Advocate for improved health outcomes for minority communities and populations: Members agree to promote and improve the delivery of culturally competent care and oppose policies that exacerbate or perpetuate economic and social inequities, including such issues as education, housing and criminal justice reform.
Strengthen trust with minority communities: Members will continue to foster, strengthen and sustain authentic relationships based on mutually agreed goals to better understand the unique needs of their communities.
Kaiser and other Catholic health care leaders who have signed the pledge recognize that collectively they are in a unique position to bring about overdue change to policies and practices that have allowed systemic racism and health disparities to continue in the United States.
To hold itself and its members accountable, CHA intends to provide updates on the commitment progress annually.
