NORMAN, Okla. (AP) – Norman and state officials are working to relocate a hospital in order to free up about 240 acres of prime real estate near downtown.

A commissioner for the Oklahoma Department of Mental Health and Substance Abuse Services says a new facility could provide better services for patients.
