After more than 25 years in cardiology, Georgianne Tokarchik, APRN-CNS, continues her passion in her chosen field. The Tulsa native serves as coordinator of the Valve and Structural Heart Center at Oklahoma Heart Institute (OHI). Tokarchik's interest in medicine sparked early in her life, when she discovered her love of service to others.
“I was always drawn to wanting to help people and loved how I could do that through nursing,” said Tokarchik. “I went into cardiology because the heart is an amazing organ. I especially love the unique and ever-changing field of structural heart.”
Tokarchik received her master’s degree from the University of Oklahoma as an acute care clinical nurse specialist after completing a Bachelor of Science degree in nursing from The University of Tulsa. She began her career as a registered nurse with a primary focus in cardiology and started working at OHI in 1999.
“OHI has always strived to bring cutting-edge technology and medicine to our patients in Tulsa and the region,” said Tokarchik. “It’s exciting to be able to provide these opportunities of care to our patients.”
When she’s not working, you can find Tokarchik traveling, spending time with her family and two dogs or cheering on her alma mater, the University of Tulsa Golden Hurricane.
