The Lawton Indian Hospital is a full service hospital situated in Oklahoma's third largest metropolitan area. Lawton Fort Sill serves as a prominent shopping, medical, recreational, educational and religious center for the region. It is the retail and distribution center for the area's cattle, dairy and agricultural industries.

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.

The Lawton Indian Hospital is modern facility with 26 beds and a staff over 30 full time credentialed providers. The facility offers inpatient care including general surgery, gynecology, internal medicine, and pediatrics, as well as outpatient services in medicine, dentistry, nursing, pharmacy, radiology, laboratory, nursing, optometry, podiatry, and audiology to name a few.

The Lawton Service Unit encompasses ten counties in the southwestern corner of Oklahoma, where 25,000 members of the Caddo, Comanche, Delaware, Fort Sill Apache, Kiowa, Apache, and Wichita tribes are concentrated. Although mountains and small lakes adorn the rugged landscape, this is great plains country. The Lawton Service Unit includes the Lawton Indian Hospital, the Anadarko Indian Health Center, and the Carnegie Indian Health Center.
