The Tahlequah, Oklahoma campus is home to our newest Outpatient Health Center at 469,000 sq-ft with more than 240 exam rooms, 2 MRIs, an ambulatory surgery center, and multiple specialty health services, the WW Hastings Hospital and the Oklahoma State University  College of Osteopathic Medicine at the Cherokee Nation, with a new hospital on the horizon.


Work and live in a community that is rich in diversity, culture, natural beauty and filled with hometown support.  Tahlequah, Oklahoma is also the capitol of the Cherokee Nation and home to Northeastern State University. A rich quality of life is the norm with a winning combination of outdoor life and charming communities alongside the winding rivers, expansive lakes, tall grass prairies and rolling green foothills of the Ozarks.  If you prefer a metro area, our facilities are also located within commuting distance to Tulsa, OK, Ft. Smith or Fayetteville AR and Joplin MO.

To ensure the story of the Cherokee Nation continues, we partner with individuals, families, and communities to improve our health and quality of life.
