Kiamichi Family Medical Center is known as a Community Health Center. We’re the first of its kind opened in Oklahoma in accord with an initiative created by President George W. Bush, who wanted to double the number of these centers nationwide while doubling the number of people served by them. Because of this status, we receive federal funding that allows us to serve patients, regardless of their ability to pay.
We provide comprehensive primary, preventive, dental, and behavioral health care to rural Oklahomans. The health center received a federal grant to open its Battiest location in May 2002. A second federally supported site opened in Idabel in May 2006. We are a public, non-profit organization that receives federal funding that lets us provide services to patients, regardless of their ability to pay.
