Tulsa Charitable Medical Services recently recognized Tulsa Bone & Joint surgeon Marcy Clements, DO, for her dedication to serving as a volunteer with the organization since 2012. Dr. Clements is one of 178 physicians who donate their time and services to help people in need.
“There is satisfaction in doing something for somebody because you know you could, not because you had to, and that hopefully you have made their life better and they can pay it forward — and that becomes a good cycle,” Dr. Clements says.
Thank you for going above and beyond to help people in need, Dr. Clements! You are an inspiration!
Tulsa Bone & Joint Associates celebrated the groundbreaking of its Union Pines Surgery Center and additional campus expansion on Tuesday, January 15, 2019.
Once completed, the new Union Pines Surgery Center will be the first of its kind in Oklahoma, offering 23:59 care inside the surgery center with optional overnight stays in a separate, onsite “stay center” for patient convenience. Tulsa Bone & Joint has owned the surgery center since 2000, moved the facility to the Tulsa Bone & Joint campus in 2006, and is now embarking on the next phase.
The new surgery center will include:
- Eight larger operating rooms with laminar flow
- Two designated pain management rooms
- 16 semi-private admit/discharge rooms for surgery
- Five beds in surgery center for 24-hour stays
A separate, onsite “stay center” will host 11 overnight rooms with support spaces, a lobby, a café and a conference room. The new surgery center will allow the practice to perform more surgeries on site, particularly joint replacement/adult reconstruction procedures.
The surgery center expansion will remodel and build onto the existing physical therapy building. During the campus expansion, physical therapy will temporarily move to Tulsa Bone & Joint’s building on the south end of the main campus, 4812 S. 109th E. Ave. When the project is complete, the redesigned physical therapy and hand therapy will move to the space where Union Pines is currently, 4800 S. 109th E. Ave.
“We are excited to take this step, which will allow us to further our ability to offer convenient, high quality and safe surgical care all on one campus,” said Linda Gunter, CEO of Tulsa Bone & Joint Associates.
The project is a joint venture with St. John/Ascension. The contractor is Flintco, and the architect is HFG Architecture. The project is expected to be completed in the summer of 2020.

Congratulations to Coach Allan Trimble of Jenks High School on your retirement!
“I grew up 100 yards north of Jenks High School. My father’s family all graduated from Jenks as did my sisters and cousins. I considered myself as ‘Jenks’ as it could get. And that meant playing football.
When Coach Trimble took over the head coaching job of the Varsity Football program my senior year, I knew we would be successful. I knew because he had his life’s priorities in order. And he wanted us to have them in order as well. Many people might not believe this, but football was not Coach Trimble’s top priority, and he didn’t want it to be for us either.
I will always carry with me the lessons I learned from football. But that lesson on priorities stands out. In one of our first team meetings after taking over, Coach asked us to list our top 4 or 5 priorities. Many answers were given, and most guys had football, school, faith, and family in some order. Coach Trimble impressed upon us that we should strive to make family, faith, and academics priorities. Football would be the privilege we could enjoy by taking care of the others.
It goes without saying that success in life stems from having our priorities in order, and Coach Trimble proved that over the span of his Hall of Fame career. I would like to send my thanks to him and his family for giving so much to our community. Your leadership has been a blessing to us all, and will continue to impact generations of young men and women well into the future.” -J. Scott Reid, MD, MAJ, MC, USA, Tulsa Bone and Joint
