In 1999, the Choctaw Nation of Oklahoma was the first tribe to build its own hospital with its own funding. The Choctaw Nation Health Care Center is a 140,000 square foot health facility with 44 hospital beds for inpatient care and 52 outpatient exam rooms located in Talihina, OK. This is the center or hub of our health care services covering 10 1/2 counties of southeastern Oklahoma.
Choctaw Nation Health Services provides more than just hospital care. In addition to being a 44 bed hospital, the Talihina facility houses Dental, Laboratory, X-Ray, CT and MRI Scanning, Mammography, Ultrasound, Pharmacy, Primary Medical Care, Surgical, Emergent Care, Physical and Respiratory Therapy, Transportation, Women’s Health, Pediatrics, Podiatry, Telemedicine and Ophthalmology. Also on campus is a Diabetic Wellness facility with a fitness center. Additional services located off-campus includes Behavioral Health, Women’s and Men’s Substance Abuse facilities and Optometry.
One of the great benefits to the Choctaw Nation Health Services is that the areas of care are located in many cities so that they can provide health care close to where their patients live. The health system has seven outlying clinics located in: Atoka, Broken Bow, Hugo, Idabel, McAlester, Poteau and Stigler as well as an Employee Health clinic located in Durant and a Community Clinic in downtown Talihina.
Boasting a multi-specialty medical staff, Choctaw Nation Health Services renders medical care through both inpatient services and over 540,000 outpatient visits annually.
Our mission is “To provide the highest quality care to the people we serve.” We are relentless and uncompromising as we fulfill our mission to improve the health of the people we serve. Honoring our values of compassion, accountability, respect, and excellence compels us to do no less.
