Cherokee Nation opens largest U.S. tribal outpatient health center

November 22, 2019

The Cherokee Nation's new four-story facility on the campus of W.W. Hastings Hospital in Tahlequah, OK, is the largest outpatient health center in the U.S. to be operated by a tribe, according to an article on the Tahlequah Daily Press.

As part of a joint venture between a tribe and the federal government, the Cherokee Nation invested $200 million in construction and equipment for the facility and Indian Health Service is providing $100 million annually for staffing and operational costs.

The new facility is home to more than 240 exam rooms, an ambulatory surgery center, two MRI machines, primary care, 34 dental chairs, full-service optometry and specialty health services.

More than 600 pieces of Cherokee art are on display throughout the new outpatient health center, including work by 64 Cherokee National Treasures.
