Senate President Pro Tempore Greg Treat on Thursday announced his appointment of Randy Curry of Weatherford to the board of the Oklahoma Health Care Authority.
Curry currently serves as rural health coordinator for the Southwestern Oklahoma State University School of Pharmacy. Before that, he spent more than 30 years in retail pharmacy. Curry holds a bachelor’s degree in pharmacy from SWOSU.
“Maintaining access to quality, affordable health care in rural Oklahoma is an incredibly important issue that our health care leaders are focused on. With more than 30 years of retail pharmacy experience and work with SWOSU supporting a network of more than 300 rural pharmacies and some hospitals, Randy Curry is well situated to provide insight on how the OHCA can effectively serve the rural health care community. I appreciate Mr. Curry’s willingness to serve and know he’ll do a great job working with the OHCA board and staff to improve the delivery of health care services across our state,” said Treat, R-Oklahoma City.
Curry is the second of two appointments made by Treat to the OHCA under new government accountability measures signed into law earlier this year. Treat previously appointed Bob Boyd of Owasso to the board.
