New Cherokee Nation Outpatient Healthcare Center
IMEG provided mechanical, electrical, and plumbing engineering design services for a new 470,000-sf, four-story Medical Outpatient Health facility in Tahlequah, OK. The new facility is the largest Indian Health Service joint venture in the U.S. to date and was funded primarily by the Cherokee Nation and Cherokee Nation Business.
The health center supports a range of medical services, including ambulatory surgery, audiology, endoscopy lab, radiology, orthopedics, pharmacy, physical rehabilitation and wellness, respiratory services, and primary care offices. An assortment of clinics can also be found throughout the facility, including behavioral health, women’s health, pediatrics, dentistry, and optometry. The facility also required a connected multi-level parking structure as part of the scope of work. All clinical and administrative spaces within the building meet DHHS/IHS/DES A/E design guidelines.
