Q&A with Terry W. Taylor: Foundation president enjoys promoting, advocating for Oklahoma Health Center

Foundation president enjoys promoting, advocating for Oklahoma Health Center

It's a Monday morning and Terry Taylor, president of the Oklahoma Health Center Foundation (OHCF), is preparing for a meeting that afternoon to recap a recent fundraising dinner.

Since 2000, the OHCF has sponsored an annual “Treasures for Tomorrow” gala to thank Oklahomans who've brought goodness to the Oklahoma City community. More than 80 have been recognized, including this year's honorees Mike Knopp, a visionary for the Oklahoma Boathouse District, and Wes Welker, whose foundation has helped fund equipment for athletic fields of Oklahoma City Public Schools.

Along with saluting the Oklahoma role models, the event helps fund OHCF, which promotes innovations in health care and science. It also serves as a connector between its member organizations — OU Medicine, the Oklahoma Medical Research Foundation, Dean McGee Eye Institute, Ronald McDonald House Charities, American Red Cross and several others — to raise awareness of the Oklahoma Health Center as a key driver of economic development among businesses and governmental entities.

“I think the center is still hidden to many people,” said Taylor, who joined the foundation in 2008 as its planning director and became president in July 2013.

“They know it's over here, but they don't know its impact,” Taylor said. The Oklahoma Health Center represents an investment of more than $3 billion in capital infrastructure, and some 17,000 to 18,000 people — including employees, students, patients and visitors — come here every day,” he said.

From his fourth-floor offices at 800 Research Parkway near NE 6 and N Lincoln, Taylor, 56, sat down with The Oklahoman to talk about his life and career, including overseeing the foundation's four-person staff, 52-member board and $2.5 million budget. This is an edited transcript:
