The construction of a brand new Wahzhazhe health clinic in Pawhuska is underway, which will be six times larger than their current space. Congresswoman Paula Stabler, who has been working on the project since 2015, believes that the success of the project is due to the hard work of many individuals.
The new clinic will feature space for primary care, lab testing, a pharmacy, and a diabetes department with a full-time dietician. Cindra Shangreau, a board member, adds that there will also be an optical department, expanded dental services, and physical therapy. Additionally, the new facility is designed with room for the clinic to grow in the future.
While the construction of the new clinic has been decades in the making, the Osage Nation is focused on providing quality healthcare to its people for generations to come. The facility is expected to be complete by the summer of 2025 and will provide much-needed resources for healthcare professionals in Oklahoma City.
