Cherokees get $2.5M for health equipment

Indian Health Services has awarded $2,577,845 to the Cherokee Nation for new health equipment at W.W. Hastings Hospital and four tribal health centers.

According to a media release, the grant from the IHS Oklahoma City Area Office supplements the $6 million the Cherokee Nation Tribal Council redirected for new health equipment and supplies last month.

W.W. Hastings Hospital, the new Sam Hider Health Center in Jay and the new Cooweescoowee Health Center in Ochelata will receive a portion of the grant money. Redbird Smith Health Center in Sallisaw and Wilma P. Mankiller Health Center in Stilwell also will receive funds for new equipment in their respective expansion projects.

The funding will purchase radiology equipment, as well as dental equipment, wheelchairs, defibrillators and more.
