Governor Stitt Appoints Dr. Corey Finch to Oklahoma Health Care Authority Board

Wednesday, February 16, 2022

Governor Kevin Stitt today announced he has appointed Dr. Corey D. Finch to the Oklahoma Health Care Authority Board, filling the vacancy created by Stanley Hupfeld’s resignation.

“Dr. Corey Finch is a talented physician and a dedicated servant leader,” said Gov. Stitt. “I am glad to appoint him to the OHCA Board and have every confidence he will serve Oklahomans well as we work to improve health outcomes across our state.”

Finch is currently the chief medical officer of Long Term Care Specialists, which services over 200 facilities in Oklahoma. He is a family physician with experience in several areas of medicine including but not limited to primary care, emergency medicine and hospital inpatient care. 

Finch graduated from Howard University College of Medicine, completed his internship at Georgetown University/Washington Hospital Center General Surgery Program, and his residency at Eglin Family Medicine Residency.

"I appreciate the opportunity Gov. Stitt has given me to serve the people of Oklahoma,” said Finch. “As a physician, I intend to provide a practical perspective of how the board's decisions will impact clinicians and patients. A healthy Oklahoma leads to a productive Oklahoma, and I believe top ten health outcomes are achievable for our state.”

Finch served as an enlisted soldier in the U.S. Army and as a physician in the U.S. Air Force, including two active duty stints at Tinker AFB from 2006-2008 and 2011-2014.

He lives in Oklahoma City with his wife and their seven children.
