Situated in Lawton, the third largest city in Oklahoma, the Indian hospital is thoroughly modern. The facility has 45 beds and a staff of 16 physicians who perform nearly as many surgical procedures. This full-service facility offers inpatient care including general surgery, obstetrics and gynecology, internal medicine, and pediatrics, as well as outpatient services in medicine, dentistry, pharmacy, radiology, laboratory, nursing, optometry, and audiology to name a few. There is also a community health staff of nurses, educators, social workers, and sanitarians. Over 2100 adult and pediatric admissions annually combine with almost 65,000 outpatient visits to make this a busy health care facility. The city of Lawton-Ft. Sill, only 85 miles southwest of Oklahoma City, has a population of roughly 100,000. Surrounded by mountains and small lakes, the city enjoys a stable economy, largely due to the 26,000 service personnel on active duty at Fort Sill and an equal number of former Army members who chose to make Lawton their home after retiring from the service.
