SSM Health worked closely with the medical group providers, Miller Architects, and developers Darin Miller and David Neff, to create the innovative, two-story medical office building. Miller and Neff have a long-standing relationship with SSM Health in Oklahoma, as they designed the SSM Health St. Anthony Healthplex campuses, including the newest location in El Reno, slated to open in May of 2021. Miller-Tippens Construction is the general contractor on the project.

SSM Health Medical Group will continue to offer services at its locations on Kethley, near SSM Health St. Anthony Hospital – Shawnee, after the opening of the location on Harrison.
