The Choctaw Nation McAlester Health Clinic is a 44806 sq. ft. outpatient facility designed & constructed on a fast-track schedule. The design projects a modern, sophisticated image that not only reflects today's Choctaw people, but also reflects the culture, history and heritage of the Choctaw Nation. The image conveyed was an important topic in the pre-design meetings with the leadership of the Choctaw Nation. The form and finishes chosen for this facility are meant to address the Nation's concerns and convey a modern state-of-the-art facility, one which provides quality care to its Native American patients and families while reflecting their rich cultural heritage. Traditional tribal elements such as symbols etched in the interior glazing & artwork displayed in recessed niches are incorporated throughout the facility.
