Midwest City, a suburb of Oklahoma City, is a great place to live, work and raise a family. To continually ensure this, city leaders have dedicated their efforts to seven quality of life essentials. 

  1. Public Safety – Midwest City employs expertly trained, experienced and equipped police and fire personnel. (Midwest City’s police and fire departments are ranked among the best in the nation)  
  2. Superior Schools – The Mid-Del School System is one of Oklahoma’s finest.  It is comprised of award-winning primary and secondary schools staffed by dedicated teachers and administrators. Midwest City is also home to Rose State College with an average enrollment of over 13,000 students. Nearly 60 degree and skilled-occupational programs are available at Rose State; many of which prepare students for completion of a bachelor’s degree.  
  3. Quality Health Care – Midwest Regional Medical Center, located in the heart of Midwest City, is one of Oklahoma’s outstanding health care facilities. The J.C.A.H.O accredited 255-bed acute care hospital has recently completed a $25-million construction project that included the addition of 102 new in-patient beds. Midwest Regional has nearly 300 primary care and specialty physicians on staff. Patients have access to a full spectrum of healthcare expertise, including cardiac, pulmonary and orthopedics services, as well as internal medicine, OB/GYN and urology. Midwest Regional has Oklahoma’s most experienced robotic-assisted surgical team. 
  4. Sustained Employment Growth – Midwest City’s community partnership with Tinker Air Force Base is one of the most successful in the nation. Tinker, one of Oklahoma’s largest employers, continues to offer employment opportunities. (A $22 million renovation of the former GM plant, located near Tinker, has been conducted in order to provide specialty facilities and equipment for aircraft engine maintenance.) 

    Midwest City’s growing manufacturing, service, sales, and retail business communities have steadily increased their demand for employees. These are forecast to continue in growth over the next decade. 

  5. Low Cost-of-Living – Midwest City has long been a favorite for retirees because of its low cost of living relative to price levels for housing, utilities, transportation, grocery items, health care and miscellaneous goods and services.
  6. Community Churches – Midwest City is a community where worship and freedom of religion are valued.  The city has church denominations of nearly every faith.
  7. Recreation, Restaurants and Shopping – Midwest City is proud of its many beautiful parks, and boast of its tree-lined, manicured fairways at John Conrad Golf Course. Retail shopping is abundant in Midwest City, and continues to expand, both on 29th Street, and in other areas of the community. Growth in the number of quality dinning establishments has accelerated greatly over the last few years.

Midwest City Chamber of Commerce, and the City of Midwest City work closely together to enhance quality of life essentials for residents by supporting business growth. Chamber members are actively involved in communication, programs and leadership in order to help attain the maximum level of success for the City of Midwest City and local businesses. 

Thank you for your interest and involvement in the continued growth and success of Midwest City.

What is the Chamber of Commerce?

The Midwest City Chamber of Commerce is the front door to the business community. The role of the Chamber, during this exciting time of Midwest City’s growth and development, is to help promote existing businesses, attract new businesses, and to continue to create opportunities that enhance quality of life.

With the help of its members, the Midwest City Chamber of Commerce has been able to promote Midwest City as an extraordinary community and a great place to call home.

The Midwest City Chamber of Commerce is a voluntary coalition of businesses, citizens and organizations whose members seek to address common community concerns through volunteer leadership.  The Midwest City Chamber of Commerce is a 501 (c) (6) non-profit organization incorporated under the laws of the State of Oklahoma and established in 1947.

A seven-member Executive Committee and a Board of Directors govern the Chamber.  The Board of Directors includes twenty-four persons elected from the Chamber’s membership, three persons appointed by the President of the Board, and all active past presidents.

The Chamber is organized under the leadership of four Divisional Vice Presidents for the purpose of coordinating its program of work. Vice presidents are selected annually for the Public Image Division, Business Development Division, Community Development Division and Organizational Development Division.  The four divisions are further organized into committees. A program of work is developed by the membership at the Chamber’s annual planning session conducted during the fall of each year.
