The Cherokee Nation’s new four-story, 469,000 square foot outpatient health center has opened its optometry, audiology, physical rehabilitation, behavioral health, radiology, lab and pharmacy services. Principal Chief Chuck Hoskin Jr.

The new facility is the largest tribal outpatient health center in the country and is opening in phases in October.

“The Cherokee Nation is excited to open this beautiful new facility that allows us to serve more of our citizens, and offer more services than they ever had before,” Principal Chief Chuck Hoskin said. “This facility is a real game changer that will improve our overall health system and is a huge investment in our local economy.”

The Cherokee Nation invested about $200 million from its general fund into the facility’s construction and the purchase of equipment. Indian Health Service is funding $100 million per year in staffing and operating costs as part of the historic joint venture agreement with the tribe.

Dental and resident clinic services will open to patients on Oct. 21, and a grand opening ceremony is planned for November 14.

Cherokee Nation operates the largest tribal health system in the country with more than 1.3 million patient visits per year.
