Hupfeld appointed to the OHCA Board of Directors

Governor Mary Fallin recently appointed Stanley F. Hupfeld, of Oklahoma City, to the Oklahoma Health Care Authority (OHCA) Board of Directors.    

Hupfeld currently serves as Senior Consultant of INTEGRIS Health following a career with the health care system that spans more than 30 years. He became President and Chief Executive Officer of Oklahoma Healthcare Corporation and its subsidiaries, including Baptist Medical Center of Oklahoma, on March 30, 1987. In 1995, he led the merger of Baptist Medical Center, Southwest Medical Center, and Baptist Healthcare of Oklahoma to form INTEGRIS Health, an integrated delivery system comprising 13 hospitals, all in Oklahoma. After 23 years as President and Chief Executive Officer of INTEGRIS Health, Hupfeld transitioned January 2010 to Chairman of the INTEGRIS Family of Foundations then into his current position.   

“Mr. Hupfeld brings a wealth of health care experience to this appointment. We’re excited to have him join our board and look forward to working together for our SoonerCare and Insure Oklahoma programs,” said OHCA CEO Becky Pasternik-Ikard.    

Prior to his career with INTEGRIS Health, Hupfeld served as President of All Saints Healthcare in Fort Worth for 10 years. He also served in the U.S. Army in Vietnam from 1968 to 1970.    

A native of Dallas, Hupfeld has served on numerous boards and commissions both nationally and in Oklahoma. As the driving force of the nation’s first and only hospital-sponsored charter school, Hupfeld was honored in 2009 when the INTEGRIS Health Board of Directors voted to rename the school The Stanley Hupfeld Academy at Western Village.     

I am pleased to join a first rate board and capable staff to administer a program to serve the health needs of many financially at-risk Oklahomans,” Hupfeld noted.  

 

The Oklahoma Health Care Authority (OHCA) administers two health programs for the state. The first is SoonerCare, Oklahoma’s Medicaid program. SoonerCare works to improve the health of qualified Oklahomans by ensuring that medically necessary benefits and services are available. Qualifying Oklahomans include certain low-income children, seniors, the disabled, those being treated for breast or cervical cancer and those seeking family planning services. The second program OHCA operates is Insure Oklahoma, which assists qualifying adults and small business employees in obtaining health care coverage for themselves and their families. Currently, there are 815,301 Oklahomans enrolled in OHCA’s programs. The agency contracts with a network of 45,350 providers. For more information, visit www.okhca.org or www.insureoklahoma.org.
