Patti Wheaton, APRN-CNP, a local nurse practitioner, was recently named Distinguished Woman Entrepreneur of the Year at the WE Inspire conference hosted by OSU’s Riata Center for Entrepreneurship.
Patti is the owner of Faith Family Clinic in Jenks, Oklahoma. Faith Family Clinic’s mission is to serve low income, uninsured families. The clinic is a primary care provider for SoonerCare, Medicaid and Insure Oklahoma, and also offers affordable care for uninsured and underinsured patients. Patti’s goal from the beginning was to provide a clean, welcoming facility for her patients, regardless of their insurance status.
Patti opened Faith Family Clinic in 2003, seeing patients just two days a week.Today, she sees patients full-time, has six employees, and provides healthcare to over 1,200 patients from more than 70 cities across northeast Oklahoma and the surrounding regions. Many patients continue coming to Patti even after moving out of state because of the passionate care, personalized services, and comfortable environment available at Faith Family Clinic.
Patti has overcome many obstacles in pursuit of her dream, including many financial challenges. But Patti’s passion for healthcare, vision for service, and faith in God has kept Faith Family Clinic growing steadily. The clinic does not take any federal funding or grants, which provides Patti the freedom she needs to always work in the best interest of her patients. After nine successful years, her service model remains successful and continues to make a difference in the lives of her patients.
