Lawton Indian Hospital

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

The city of Lawton, only 85 miles southwest of Oklahoma City and 50 miles North of Wichita Falls, TX, has a population of roughly 100,000. Steeped in history, our city is 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 military personnel 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 a full suite of outpatient services in medicine, dentistry, nursing, pharmacy, radiology, laboratory, nursing, optometry, podiatry, and audiology to name a few. There is also a large number of public health nursing staff, health educators, social workers, and environmental health specialists. The hospital provides approximately 800 admissions and over 185,000 outpatient visits per year. Our mission is to raise the physical, mental, social and spiritual health of American Indians and Alaska natives (AI/AN) to the highest level possible.
