Local Art Show Raises Thousands for Stroke Patients

A local art show raised more than $3440 for Mercy’s stroke education, treatment and prevention programs. The benefit, which was organized by Oklahoma Artists Invitational (OAI), featured original works from 24 artists, including Mercy’s Dr. Dustan Buckley. To date, OAI has donated more than $16,617 to Mercy’s stroke center.
Mercy Hospital Oklahoma City is currently home to the state’s largest group of neuroscience specialists in the southwestern United States, and the state’s largest number of neurohospitalists – physicians dedicated solely to providing neurological care for patients admitted into the hospital. In February, Mercy was named a top stroke center in the nation.
