Business of Health: Philadelphia story bears similarities to OKC's innovation district

By Stephen Prescott, M.D.
For The Oklahoman

Last month, I went to Philadelphia. And despite what W.C. Fields may have led folks to believe, it most definitely was not closed.

By all appearances, the City of Brotherly Love is open for business — and hopping. Indeed, as Oklahoma City strives to transform the Oklahoma Health Center into a thriving, mixed-use innovation district, we can learn some important lessons from Ben Franklin’s hometown.

The trip, which I made with a group of other stakeholders from the Health Center, was arranged by the Greater Oklahoma City Chamber of Commerce. Our goal was to get some insight into the University City Science Center, the nation’s oldest and largest urban research park.
