Three Rivers Health Center

This health center began in 1993 in a small rented office on Main Street. The Cherokee Nation Women Infant and Children’s (WIC) Program and Public Health Nursing provided immunizations and well-child checks. More services were added and a building close to Muskogee Regional Hospital was leased in 1997.

In August, 2002, the center was moved to a third location. At that time the staff included a full-time physician, a full-time Family Nurse Practitioner, a part-time pediatrician and supporting staff. In spite of slightly more available space the clinic’s focus remained limited to women and children’s health care.

Sensing the need for a broader scope of services and to reduce the burden of outpatient services at the W.W. Hastings Hospital, the tribe entered into a Joint venture Program with Indian Health Service to construct a facility with the appropriate size and scope of services for its service population. The Joint Venture Construction Program allowed the Cherokee Nation to receive dollars for staffing and operations.

Hours of Operation:

Monday through Friday from 7:00 a.m. - 5:30 p.m.

The new center is located across from the Craig County Fairgrounds. The facility is adorned with original Cherokee art and lithographs depicting characters and events spanning the time of the Civil War and how it affected the families of the Cherokee Nation.

Will Rogers Health Center

Originally named the Nowata Primary Health Care Clinic, that facility was housed in a very small building. It was relocated in 1997 to a location within the community’s industrial park. While this facility offered more space, community demands quickly outgrew the new location. As a result, the tribe undertook the construction of a brand new state-of-the-art facility to meet growing demands and better serve its citizens. The current facility opened its doors in December 2007 as the Will Rogers Health Center.
