The Muscogee (Creek) Indians are an Indigenous Nation whose roots in Oklahoma date back to the 1800’s. The Nation provides a variety of services for its 80,000 members, including health care.
The Nation built its Muscogee (Creek) Nation Community Hospital in Okemah, Oklahoma, to replace its outdated hospital that was built in 1948. The new 118,000-square foot hospital has a 14-bed emergency department, two operating rooms, 24 outpatient clinic exam rooms, 25 inpatient beds, as well as a variety of specialty services. The Nation faced a common challenge on this project – how to get the design it wanted without exceeding its budget.
