Facility scheduled to open Aug. 6
EUFAULA, Oklahoma — The Muscogee (Creek) Nation Department of Health held a ribbon cutting July 31 for the new Eufaula Indian Health Center.
The new 73,000 square foot facility is a joint venture between MCN and the Indian Health Service. It will have services ranging from primary care, dental, physical therapy, diabetes and behavioral health with a state of the art wellness center and pharmacy.
MCN Secretary of Health Shawn Terry said operations at the facility should be up and running by Aug. 6, with the dental clinic having a two week delay.
“It’s going to be a very comprehensive place for our citizens and patients to go,” he said.
The new clinic is an upgrade from the former 5,000 square foot facility located down the road built in 1979.
Brightly color coded with Muscogee (Creek) design integrated throughout, Terry said the new facility would serve Eufaula as well as the surrounding communities.
“It’s just so viable to the overall importance to our community and I’m just so happy that Muscogee (Creek) Nation’s the leader in providing healthcare,” he said.
MCN held a ground-breaking ceremony for the facility May 28, 2015.
