Departments

From day one, you will never stop learning; not only can you be a CVT circulator you can also have the opportunity to learn how to scrub our CVT cases.

Cardiovascular OR

We have four cardiovascular/thoracic ORs, one being a Hybrid OR, a cross between a cardiovascular OR and a cath lab. We really embody teamwork in our area to care for our patients. Depending on the case, we have two RN circulators, two to three surgical technologists, one to two surgeons, an anesthesiologist and possibly a perfusionist in the room caring for the patient.

From day one, you will never stop learning; not only can you be a CVT circulator you can also have the opportunity to learn how to scrub our CVT cases. We are a fast-paced and, at times, intense environment, but if you want the challenge of working in the best CVOR in the state, then this is the place.

"I think we all get a lot of satisfaction from the types of cases we work. The camaraderie we get from working so closely on the cases we do is like no other department I’ve worked in. INTEGRIS Health Baptist Medical Center is the only hospital in Oklahoma where the intensity and acuity on open hearts are this intense."

-Ashley, RN/surgical technologist
