In July, the new 180,000-square-foot Ernest Childers VA Outpatient Clinic in Tulsa opened its doors for Veterans in Eastern Oklahoma.
The new clinic, located across the street from Hillcrest Hospital South at 8801 South 101st East Avenue, will serve approximately 36,000 Veterans and offer new services such as chemotherapy and infusion, endoscopy and mammography. The new facility replaces the Tulsa clinic at 9322 East 41st Street, which closed in August 2021.
“I would like to welcome all Veterans in Eastern Oklahoma to the new Ernest Childers VA Outpatient Clinic,” said Mark Morgan, director, Eastern Oklahoma VA Health Care System.
Before the opening, Morgan said, “Over the next few weeks, we’ll be opening a greatly expanded clinic that offers more imaging services, increased women’s health care, primary care and behavioral health. You’ll find that access to the clinic is much easier than the current clinic on 41st with expanded parking for Veterans, family, and staff. It’s an honor for me and my entire staff to offer this new health care clinic to our Veterans.”
The clinic provides primary care, radiology, prosthetics, specialty clinics, nutrition & food service and social work services. Additional services include audiology, mental health, rehab, chemotherapy and infusion, dental, optometry and endoscopy.
