Our Community

Tahlequah, Oklahoma serves as the hub for the Cherokee Nation and is home to Northeastern State University, the Illinois River and Lake Tenkiller. Tahlequah is a community of about 17,000 and the area is rich in local history as well as Cherokee culture. Tahlequah is only an hour commute from the Tulsa metropolitan area where there is fine dining, shopping, recreational parks and the Tulsa International Airport.

Our Facilities

Cherokee Nation Health Services (CNHS) is committed to providing the highest quality of care and the most advanced, effective treatments for our patients. With almost 160 full-time providers and over 2,200 health services employees, CNHS is the gem of the region in continuity of care. Committed to improving patient access, Cherokee Nation has invested substantially in technology, building new facilities and expanding existing locations. Our hospital and nine health centers are full of talented staff that are dedicated to providing world-class patient care.

W.W. Hastings Hospital is a 60-bed inpatient hospital that Cherokee Nation assumed on October 1, 2008. The continuity of care across the health system is now complete and this is evidenced by tangible improvements to the facility and to service delivery. In December 2020, legislation was signed that will provide $400 million to fund construction of a brand new, state-of-the-art hospital on the Tahlequah campus that will replace the existing W.W. Hastings building.

CNHS recently opened a new four-story, 469,000 square-foot outpatient health center on the Tahlequah campus in October of 2019. Some of the services offered include optometry, audiology, physical rehabilitation, behavioral health, radiology, lab, pharmacy, primary care, and dental. The facility also features a new ambulatory surgery center, with five surgical suites, and two-endoscopy suites.

Our Partnership

Cherokee Nation Health Services has partnered with Oklahoma State University College of Osteopathic Medicine (OSU-COM) to open the country's first tribally affiliated Medical School on the Tahlequah campus. The inaugural class consists of 50 students and classes began in the fall of 2020.
