In November 2022, AllianceHealth, an affiliate of Community Health Systems, informed the City of Woodward it would not renew the lease for the Woodward hospital when it expires on November 30, 2023. Since that time, city leaders began a search for a new organization to lease and operate the Woodward hospital.
“The City of Woodward is excited to partner with INTEGRIS Health to bring exceptional health care to our community, which will not only benefit Woodward residents but all of Northwest Oklahoma, and the tri-state region. The partnership with INTEGRIS Health will also establish Woodward as a regional source for health care services,” says Shaun Barnett, city manager.
INTEGRIS Health will begin operating the hospital on December 1, 2023.
