he’s a leader with integrity and a heart to serve Oklahoma.
I know he will do well in helping lead the Health Care Authority,”

“I am honored that Pro Tem Treat would place his trust in
me to serve in this important role at the Health Care Authority.
I am eager to dig in and get to work ensuring the agency is using
tax dollars as efficiently and effectively as possible so that we
can serve those who truly need assistance. I look forward to working
with the other board members and agency leadership to fulfill OHCA’s
mission,” Boyd said.
