Owasso Promotes Health and Wellness.
Owasso is in the process of growing its cluster of medical care providers. This goal is made possible by the location in Owasso of two stellar hospital and healthcare facilities. Bailey Medical Center and St. John Owasso have contributed to the area’s rankings as two of the healthiest of Oklahoma’s 77 counties (Rogers County, #2; Tulsa County #18) by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation’s annual County Health Rankings & Roadmaps. A growing cadre of family practitioners and specialists also provide quality care to citizens.
Bailey Medical Center offers a full range of medical services, including general surgery, obstetrics, gynecology, orthopedics, and emergency care. The 73-bed, physician-owned hospital, the largest in Owasso, is one of the most technologically advanced hospitals in the region. The hospital employs approximately 200 medical professionals with an annual payroll of about $10 million.

Ascension St. John, opened in 2006, is a 36-bed hospital that offers a wide range of healthcare services: emergency care, orthopedic services, sports medicine, women’s health, outpatient services and all-digital diagnostic imaging services. An affiliate of St. John Health System, a part of Ascension, the nation's largest Catholic and nonprofit health system, it is the only hospital in Oklahoma to be named a Truven Health Top 100 Hospital.
Owasso hosts an office of the Tulsa Health Department, which has a goal of making Tulsa the healthiest county in the U.S. within the next ten years.
