The Chickasaw Nation Medical Center opened in July 2010. This 370,000 square foot state-of-the-art facility has 72 beds, 33 dental chairs and houses new MRI and CT Scanning technology.
The Chickasaw Nation Department of Health is a tribal program consisting of one hospital in Ada and three satellite health clinics located in Ardmore, Purcell and Tishomingo, Oklahoma. In Ada our health system facilities include a medical/surgical hospital, outpatient primary care clinics, outpatient physical therapy, office of environmental health and wellness program facilities which include the Family Life Center available at no charge to all employees and their families. All satellite clinics are within one hour drive of the hospital and refer to specialists in Ada when needed. All facilities are Joint Commission accredited.
The health department has allopathic and osteopathic physicians and an optometry clinic staffed with clinical residency-trained optometrists. We have an award-winning Diabetes Program housed in a new Diabetes Center, an audiology department that provides services and hearing aids to our patients and dental services that include general dentistry, oral surgery, endodontics, and pedodontics. We work closely with the Oklahoma University Health Sciences Center and participate in grant projects and research projects such as the Today Program for Childhood Diabetes. We have all ancillary services normally within a hospital. Our pharmacists are all PharmD grads and serve as part of the healthcare team working closely to assist our providers.
The Chickasaw Nation Department of Health is seeking health care professionals who are passionate about practicing within a unique, interdisciplinary team-based environment that embraces our mission to provide American Indians with healthcare services that promote health and wellness.
Ada is a great place to live and work with a clean, safe atmosphere for your family. Being in central Oklahoma provides excellent access to Tulsa, Oklahoma City and Dallas, Texas as well as several lakes where you can enjoy leisure activities and water sports. This is the green hill country of Oklahoma! Ada has many amenities usually associated with larger communities, several excellent school systems and East Central State University – a 4 year university that also offers graduate programs. Leisure activities include golf, tennis, walking or jogging in Wintersmith Park, using our own Family Life Center at no charge, hunting, boating, fishing and a new Lazer Tag entertainment center.
We are a progressive, quality-oriented community located in the rolling hills of southern Oklahoma. Imbued with ingenuity, a pioneering spirit, and hospitality, we’ve been described as a place where the West meets the South! Incorporated in 1901, it now has a population of 17,000. Ada is located within easy driving distances of three major cities, and is a Main Street City and a Tree City USA member. Ada is large enough to offer many bigger city amenities, such as a four-year university and a thriving business climate, yet still small enough to provide a safe and fun place to raise a family. Ada is home to a world-class EPA water laboratory and the home of the nation’s most progressive tribe, the Chickasaw Nation. Ada is birthplace to the state’s first native-born governor and longtime U.S. Senator Robert S. Kerr. Recent celebrities from Ada include country music superstar Blake Shelton, NFL player Jeremy Shockey and Miss Oklahoma 2009 Taylor Treat. Come see us, you’re always welcome here!
