OCCHD will soon have a new 25-thousand square foot campus to open late summer 2018. The Southern Oaks Learning and Wellness Campus is located at 6728 South Hudson next to Parmelee Elementary and Southern Oaks Library.
Located in our city’s zip code with the lowest health indicators, OCCHD chose this location to serve the citizens of South Oklahoma City by bringing together a multitude of partners that allow for a broad array of services to be offered. Partners such as OKC Parks and Recreation, OU Physicians, Police Athletic League and UCO will come together to meet needs in an integrated way.
The Southern Oaks Campus will also offer clinical services ranging from immunizations, sexual health, and family planning, to community health services like Total Wellness classes and an opportunity to be a part of the Wellness Now Coalition, in which community members are engaged in solving problems within their local community. Other amenities offered will include a training kitchen to teach people how to prepare nutritious meals on a limited budget, large auditorium and community meeting space.
OCCHD and OKC Parks and Recreation are working together on physical activity opportunities around the center including a walking trail, improvement in nearby sports fields and other forms of recreation.
The campus is the result of the OCCHD Board of Health working with Oklahoma City leaders with a vision to provide a campus which will increase quality of life for the citizens of South Oklahoma City.
